ZE to Participate in Argus Americas Coal Summit

March 28, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada -

ZE PowerGroup Inc. (ZE) is sponsoring the forthcoming Argus Americas Coal Summit in Miami, Florida, which is taking place from 3 to 5 April, 2013. The summit will focus on the trends and opportunities in global coal markets, with particular attention paid to the production outlook for North America. Argus, a ZE data partner, provides coal market intelligence, pricing and analysis for US coal markets, helping industry participants to deal with the challenges associated with this market.

Aiman El-Ramly, ZE’s Chief Strategy Officer, is presenting at the event. His presentation will concentrate on “Managing Risk in the Global Coal Market”. Global coal market participants rely on large amounts of historical, current and forward market data to make critical business decisions. Currently, an oversupply of coal and weak demand is driving down prices towards unprofitable levels in North America. Stricter legislation, seasonal demand fluctuations and the rising demand for shale gas, are forcing producers to assess opportunities to export coal to South America, Europe and Asia. At the same time, building new or expanding existing export infrastructure is a challenge. A combination of such factors creates a strong need for access to real-time and historical data reports, across all commodities, for more detailed analysis. Aiman will discuss how ZEMA Suite, ZE’s enterprise data management and analysis solution is currently being leveraged by coal market participants to collect and analyze these reports to facilitate price forecasting and reporting.

ZEMA Suite replaces fragmented data collection and analysis processes with a sophisticated and automated approach. Its unmatched data capture engine schedules, imports and centralizes over 3,500 data reports from over 400 information providers in energy, commodities and financial markets. ZEMA provides corporations with enhanced functionality for forward curve management and easily integrates with third party systems for effectively sharing intelligence across an organization.
