Griffin wins EFET award for “Excellence in facilitating the efficiency and reliability of power, gas and associated markets”
BRUSSELS 10th September 2019
The European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) has announced Griffin as a winner of its inaugural awards for excellence in facilitating the efficiency and reliability of power, gas and associated markets.
In presenting the award at EFET’s 20th anniversary event, EFET’s Chairperson, Regina Mandic, emphasised that Griffin is a benchmark for brokers which provides a superior service compared to a plain vanilla brokerage.
The award also recognised Griffin’s proactive and solution-oriented approach which, in EFET’s view, has triggered an overall improvement in the quality of brokerage services as competitors have sought to keep pace.
EFET’s inaugural awards were made as a result of nominations from EFET members for initiatives which have promoted the development of well-integrated markets and reinforced the role of market mechanisms as the enablers of Europe’s energy transition.
Commenting on the award, Griffin’s CEO, Simon Davidson said: “Receiving an award for excellence in facilitating markets is fantastic. But to receive recognition like this from our customers makes it extra special. We continue to work hard to differentiate ourselves from
competitors and deliver excellence in execution, innovation and integrity to our markets.”
EFET promotes competition, transparency and open access in the European energy sector. It also seeks to build trust in power and gas markets across Europe, so that they may underpin a sustainable and secure energy supply and enable the transition to a carbon neutral economy.
Established in 1999, EFET today represents more than 100 energy trading companies across Europe. One of its key priorities is working to improve the functionality and design of European gas, electricity and associated markets for the benefit of the overall EU economy,
society and especially consumers.
