Written by:

Team Energy Exemplar
  •  Singapore wholesale electricity market operator Energy Market Company (EMC) will use simulation software PLEXOS to investigate the impact of policies and global trends on the National Electricity Market of Singapore (NEMS)
  • The software creates digital replicas of real-world energy markets and models a wide range of different scenarios

Singapore’s wholesale electricity market operator, EMC will be using PLEXOS to investigate the impact of policies on the NEMS transition towards net-zero. 

With the energy industry facing challenges from the energy transition, EMC will use PLEXOS, Energy Exemplar’s market-leading suite of advanced modelling tools, to investigate the economic and structural impacts of policy changes and new market features in the National Electricity Market of Singapore (NEMS).

 EMC will thus be enhancing their existing modelling capabilities to envision possible future energy landscape scenarios and influence the development of Singapore’s electricity market.

 PLEXOS will empower EMC to steer the continuous evolution of NEMS and be a leading modelling expert in Asia. The software, which can model the entire energy ecosystem at scale and solve operation decisions, will also enable EMC to understand the impact of Singapore’s plan to reach net-zero carbon emissions for the power sector by 2050.

The Singapore wholesale electricity market has seen significant developments over the last 20 years, and EMC needs to be equipped with the right technology to meet changing demands.

“Partnering with Energy Exemplar will allow us to further develop our expertise in energy market modelling and deepen our knowledge of how the energy transition will impact the energy market.

“The insights gained will put EMC in good stead to forge a sustainable and resilient energy market for many more years to come.”


- Toh Seong Wah, CEO at Energy Market Company

EMC joins a rising wave of companies turning to advanced modelling technologies to remain agile and reliable amidst digitalisation and decarbonisation in the energy sector.

We exist to help energy companies and authorities all over the world plan for the future by simulating a diverse and almost limitless set of scenarios.

Our software is designed to be highly intuitive so that our partners and customers can simulate policy scenarios and understand their impact on the market easily and with confidence. 

Were pleased that EMC is adopting PLEXOS to get a better understanding of the economic implications of policy changes on Singapore’s journey to reach net-zero carbon emissions for the power sector by 2050.”
