Energy Exemplar Advertises in Potencia

The Potencia eNewsletter is a digest of the big news stories, latest projects, newest technologies and market trends in Latin American power. The electricity sector in Latin America is one of the most dynamic power markets in the world. Power demand is set to grow on the back of a rising gross domestic product and the traditional reliance on gas is being supplemented by interest in renewable potential.

Extending on its current modern marketing campaign with a direct focus on the new age of online advertising and networking platforms, targeting electricity and Hydro professionals in the ever-changing South American power and energy markets, our new flash skyscraper banner of the class-leading Power Market Simulation Software – PLEXOS for Power Systems® as advertised in the Potencia eNewsletter portrays the Hydro and Electric Forecast capabilities of the PLEXOS model in the Spanish language. Potencia is published in Spanish by Power Engineering International, targeting over 7000+ qualified industry professionals involved in consulting, planning, modelling and is scheduled to deploy on the third Thursday of every month.

We continue to direct our brand message and product features towards a targeted audience of power and market modelling professionals, and continue to promote the awareness of PLEXOS and Energy Exemplar’s branding in all power and energy markets from across the globe. By displaying the content of our flash skyscraper banner in Spanish, we have proven to the South American market that we have the resources available to deliver the best customer service possible, tailoring a customised package to suit the needs of all Latin American professionals within the industry.

2nd Annual Intelligent Hedging and Portfolio Optimisation

Featuring Guest Speaker Dr Christos Papadopoulos (Regional Manager
of Europe)

Location: Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof, Vienna, Austria
Dates: 17/04/2013 – 19/04/2013

Deregulation in the energy industry has introduced competitive markets. The price of electricity and gas depends on many factors: bidding prices of all market participants, load demand, unit outages, etc. It is uncertain and volatile. Companies are faced with the prospect of making more profit or the risk of losing money. Portfolio decisions are important in determining profitability. Recognizing market risks and management of such risks are essential in a competitive market.

Energy Exemplar made their first appearance as the Master Class sponsors at the 2013 2nd Annual Intelligent Hedging and Portfolio Optimisation Forum.

Energy Exemplar Publishes its New White Paper on PLEXOS and the Sub-Saharan Africa Power Market

Authored by Marios Vlachodimitropoulos and edited by Dr. Christos Papadopoulos, the paper discusses the inefficiencies associated with the sub-Saharan Africa power supply caused by insufficient and largely stagnated generating capacity, unreliable supply in the form of widespread power shortages and an increasing reliance on emergency power. Maintenance, problem solving solutions and the independent power supply from the SAPP and in alliance with Africa’s largest power producer has played an important role in shaping the foundation of Africa’s power market. The paper highlights the key features and capabilities of the PLEXOS model, playing an important role in helping to find the cost-effective solutions, generation capacity and transmission limits and excess supplies thus eliminating the inefficiencies.

LLNL uses PLEXOS with high performance computers to simulate the power grid

The Energy Systems project investigated the security and reliability of next-generation energy systems. LLNL partnered with Energy Exemplar and IBM to use high performance computing (HPC) resources for simulating the power grid. The collaboration has led to the development of a massively parallel implementation of Energy Exemplar’s power market simulation software that has dramatically reduced the time required for large power market studies. As a result, studies with complex, sub-hourly high-resolution simulations that previously took months to run can be completed overnight, ultimately yielding two orders of magnitude improvement in the number of scenarios that could be run per day. This preliminary work paves the way for more detailed grid models and a deeper understanding of clean energy sources for California. Even more importantly, this new ability to run large-scale sensitivity analyses on quantities of interest changed the very nature of questions that could be asked.

PLEXOS 6.300 Beta is about to close

We are excited by the functionality that the new generic Decision Variable class has unlocked. Modelling of multi-period time lag constraints, non-convex and discontinuous functions, or modelling that complex unit commitment rule. It’s all now possible! Combine this with multi-stage stochastic optimization, and the integrated Gas-Electric model and 6.300 is set to revolutionize power modelling once more.
