2014 Annual Conference on “Bringing the EU Internal Energy Market Home to Consumers”

The 2014 CEER Annual Conference will take place on Wednesday 22 January at the Palais des Académies in Brussels rue Ducale 1, 1000 Brussels.

Dr Christos Papadopoulos, Regional Manager for Energy Exemplar Europe will be amongst many of the leading energy professionals and officials from the top Energy Regulators across Europe discussing on whether the pieces are in place for the Internal Energy Market (IEM) to deliver benefits and focusing on the central theme of bringing the IEM home to consumers. The meeting will also include panel debates on the future role of the Distribution System Operator and on demand-side participation in the market. Dr Christos Papadopoulos will have the opportunity to discuss the applications and benefits of using the PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Model for long-term planning, delivering solutions to the IEM and CEER.

Energy Exemplar Whitepaper on Elegant Solutions to Power and Gas Sector Challenges Published on EUCI Energize Weekly Website

For more than 25 years, EUCI has led the way in producing the highest-quality conferences, seminars, workshops, and courses designed exclusively for the energy industry. They offer solutions and seek to help industry professionals make informed, intelligent decisions to strategically improve their position in today’s challenging business environment. The latest whitepaper titled ‘Elegant Solutions to Power and Gas Sector Challenges’ published by Dr Randell Johnson (Regional Director for East Coast) and Dr Tao Guo (Regional Director for West Coast) discusses the uncertainty and risk in the evolving energy sector and the complexities and diversity of resource change in the United states while highlighting the study on adjustable-speed pumped storage hydro-generators evaluation using PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Model, a solution to the challenges for today’s energy industry.

Energy Exemplar Advertises the Features of PLEXOS® Hydro Modelling in the end of year Hydro Review Worldwide Edition

The Hydro Review Worldwide (HRW) magazine includes feature articles on civil structures and dam design and engineering as well as in-depth coverage of key mechanical and electrical components with a feature on at least one equipment theme in each edition. Furthermore, editorial coverage includes regional and project profiles, finance, policy, operations, maintenance, the environment and sustainable development. The information readers receive helps promote and sustain the important role of hydroelectric power in the global market.

The latest half page advert of the PLEXOS® Hydro Modelling feature as published in the November/December issue of HRW, communicates the strengths of the models capabilities in providing solutions to the Hydro industry. The PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Model includes integrated stochastic optimisation of building decisions, transmission expansion and unit commitment, which after determining an optimal planning solution in medium-term, the results can be used in a detailed short-term problem and solution to enable optimal hydro-electric unit commitment using the same database.

Case Study: Validation of Chilean SIC

Hydro-thermal stochastic optimization using scenario-wise-decomposition

Published on

A systematic coordination of a hydrothermal system requires determining an optimal policy which minimizes thermal costs along the simulation period. The resolution of this problem is complex and requires a mathematical tool to solve it. The Case Study titled ‘Validation of Chilean SIC – Hydro-thermal stochastic optimization using scenario-wise-decomposition, published on the website discusses how the PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Model tool can offer a methodology which can determine an operational policy in medium-term and then use these results in a detailed short-term problem including hydro unit commitment. Results of medium-term simulation using PLEXOS® have been compared to public results from Chilean regulator to set nodal prices and simulate the system’s operation in medium term in the Chilean interconnected System. Similarities in the results provide validated proof against official current procedures from the regulator. A graphical comparison has been included to summarize these results.
