About ElectroRoute 

ElectroRoute, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, is a dynamic and fast-growing energy trading and services company.  The company was founded in 2011 and has a presence across nine European countries.  Our trading counterparties range from utilities and generators to trading houses and energy exchanges.  

In addition to proprietary trading, the company has an established Client Services unit that provides energy trading and related services to clients, particularly independent power producers.  The company has an active client portfolio with over 650MW under management and an extensive pipeline.  It has recently expanded into Great Britain and is offering market access, power purchase agreements, trading services and corporate sleeving arrangements with the ambition of having 1GW of assets under management in the UK within three years.  In addition, the company’s ambitious growth plans will see ElectroRoute becoming a physical energy supplier in the UK.

The 2016 investment by Mitsubishi Corporation in ElectroRoute has provided the company with further exciting opportunities to expand and we are actively pursuing several interesting, innovative projects as part of the wider Mitsubishi group. 



The Trading business unit at ElectroRoute is a core component of our strategic positioning within the new energy order. The unit both embodies and demonstrates ElectroRoute’s corporate belief that significant value exists in trading, optimising, enabling and intermediating the energy sector. ElectroRoute believes that rigorous fundamental and statistical analysis combined with expert industry knowledge can deliver significant improvements to commercial decision making in wholesale markets.

Trading activities revolve around ElectroRoute’s knowledge of and presence within the key financial and physical electricity markets of Europe. We trade across the entire range of short- to long-term markets within the European energy landscape on a 24 X 7 basis. 

The Trading business unit is primed to further grow its trading activities both in new markets and across new products and commodities. One of the main paths of growth now projected for the Company is the Trading of Gas. ElectroRoute wishes to build on its experience gained to date by commencing wholesale gas trading operations in Ireland and the UK.
