Leading energy providers, power-marketing companies, energy consultants, and utilities use AURORAxmp to model wholesale electricity prices and perform short, medium, and long-term studies.
In mid-1990s, the founders of EPIS, Inc. recognized that the energy industry needed a faster, more effective analytical tool to deal with the uncertainties of a volatile electric power marketplace. Building upon a deep understanding of utility economics and resource planning, they developed the AURORAxmp Electric Market Model to provide the industry with a fast, accurate tool for planning and analysis.
AURORAxmp is a fundamentals-based model that employs a multi-area, transmission-constrained dispatch logic to simulate real market conditions. Its true economic dispatch captures the dynamics and economics of electricity markets.
AURORAxmp introduces a whole new generation in modeling power and speed. Built around the new universal language for data exchange – XML – and next-generation Microsoft .NET technology, it’s a perfect platform for improved software integration, easier data exchange and faster run times.
Since its introduction in 1997, AURORAxmp has become the industry’s premier model for reliable electric-market price forecasting, resource valuation and market-risk analysis. AURORAxmp is now the tool of choice for power marketers, resource planners, regulatory agencies, financial analysts and energy consultants throughout the U.S. and Canada.
