Being part of our Product Innovation Partnership program, E3 has had invaluable real-world input into our product development over the years, contributing to the constant innovation on our platform. This partnership cements and deepens that relationship."

The partnership between Energy Exemplar and E3 will result in faster refinement of the PLEXOS modeling platform by leveraging input from E3’s advanced user base, as well as more sophisticated technical offerings, customer service, and energy solutions being offered to E3’s diverse set of clients. The new alliance will also empower energy stakeholders to make strategic decisions by combining Energy Exemplar’s innovative technology with E3’s impartial analyses. Furthermore, E3 will be able to leverage the global reach of the PLEXOS platform, while Energy Exemplar will become the preferred technology provider for E3’s clients.
