“We are really pleased with the backcast results from this dataset, as it has been built using the same high-quality standards as our other European datasets. The Nordic dataset release means we now have refreshed datasets for all the European regions.”  

- George Given, Global Data Director at Energy Exemplar

“Our Data team have been working incredibly hard over the past months to ensure PLEXOS Dataset customers will now quickly gain value from modelling in the Central, Western and Nordic regions. It also provides everyone else more reasons to explore our valuable range of data options”,
