CEEESA and the Korea Power Exchange (KPX) Establish MOU on
Electricity Market Analysis
Background: The Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economic Systems Analysis (CEEESA) and KPX have recently signed a joint Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) for cooperation in the area of electricity
system analysis, including power market design issues, short-term
market simulations, long-term market and resource adequacy
simulations, market power issues, and other electricity
system-related issues. In 2004, KPX visited CEEESA facilities
for 6 weeks training on the EMCAS software.

As a follow-up to the MOU, KPX sent some of its technical staff to Argonne for 4 months for further testing of our EMCAS software. Following the successful conclusion of this test, KPX entered into a joint graduate-level training program on electricity market analysis with CEEESA and the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Model Transfer, Training, Capacity Building: As part of
the joint collaboration, it is expected that CEEESA will transfer the
latest versions of several software products to KPX. CEEESA has
extensive expertise and experience in capacity building by assisting
our software users around the world in form of training and
implementation support. Over the last 25+ years, we have conducted
training courses in many locations around the world and have
successfully trained over 1300 experts from more than 90 countries in
the use of our tools. Our models are actively in use in many of these
Training courses and workshops can be tailored to your specific
needs and can last anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks.
Courses may be held at Argonne's facility in the Chicago area or at
