Natural Gas Fundamental Datasets for PLEXOS®

Capture the daily dynamic movement of gas prices and flow and clearly understand the relationship between the gas market's daily fluctuations and changes in electricity load and dispatch patterns.

Portfolio models and technical analysis of the natural gas market often struggle to forecast the impacts of structural change because they use historical outcomes and “norms” to predict the future.

That's why Energy Exemplar has developed gas fundamental datasets for PLEXOS, which provide a detailed, calibrated, out-of-the-box simulation of how the gas market operates. The datasets are designed to be easily customized, so Users can run multiple scenarios and sensitivities to further understand key drivers and model potential future market outcomes. Model the entire gas ecosystem in a single platform to understand future market trends in the increasingly complex low carbon economy.
