As active CIGRE members, we are proud to have presented our latest paper and learning from fellow presenters at GCC Power 2022. This event promotes collaboration from power experts across the region and the world as we strive towards global sustainable, equal, and affordable access to electricity. 
Energy markets have never been more complex and the pressure to find solutions to accelerate to Net-Zero has never been greater. To calculate the best pathways while maximising return on investment, powerful simulation platforms that allow for modelling a holistic energy market that includes electricity, water, gas, and petroleum, are becoming key. 

PLEXOS is the only solution that unifies your market simulations across electric, water, and gas energy systems, giving you unprecedented insights into the renewable energy market.

A404 Short-Term Electricity Markets - A Catalyst for the Integration of Renewables and Regional Markets in the GCC

  • GCC electricity markets are evolving both on a national as well as on a regional level (GCCIA) but need further integration and collaboration efforts
  • Ambitious renewables (RES) targets are key drivers for a tighter regional coordination within GCC
  • Short-Term electricity markets act as a catalyst to facilitate further market and RES integration
  • Quantitative analysis using tools, such as PLEXOS, is key to understanding the changing market dynamics
