On behalf of USAID, CMG Energy subcontracted Adica to provide GTMax software licensing and training for 15 utilities in Southeast Europe (SEE). With input from these utilities, Argonne National Laboratory applied GTMax to analyze a proposed SEE regional electricity market (REM).
The GTMax SEE REM study identified locational marginal prices across the regional network; economic benefits of regional trading; economic impacts on individual countries, companies and consumers; and role of hydropower in the future SEE REM.
