Energy Exemplar Announces Long-Term Partnership with Gurobi 

PLEXOS utilizing world’s best solver solution to model dynamic shift of global energy needs 

Energy Exemplar today announced a new long-term, preferred partnership with Gurobi to bring its best-in-class solver solution to global PLEXOS users.

PLEXOS, Energy Exemplar’s premiere energy modeling solution, has rapidly expanded to include new capabilities for Hydro, Gas, Transmission, Trading and Distribution. As support for different model types in PLEXOS have grown, so has demand for solvers suited to each model type.

Gurobi, the world’s most powerful optimization solver, is easy, fast and flexible. Additionally, the team is dedicated solving MIP, LP, and QP problems faster, and nearly all their development efforts are dedicated to doing so. In fact, Gurobi MIP optimization has become 59 times faster over the past nine years.

We have found Gurboi to be an ideal solver partner, sharing our passion for performance and customer success, and are excited to strengthen our relationship with a newly expanded and long-term commitment. Under this agreement, both product teams will work together to deliver the best performance to our customers” states David Wilson, CEO from Energy Exemplar.

Energy Exemplar is a real pioneer in energy market modeling.  We’re thrilled that they’ve chosen Gurobi to supply their optimization solver technology.”, said Ed Rothberg, CEO of Gurobi Optimization.

Throughout the course of this partnerships, users can expect incremental benefits including;

• Immediate availability of Gurobi for your latest PLEXOS version at no additional cost
• Deep-rooted expertise, offering Gurobi on PLEXOS since 2013
