An award-winning solution

MISO serves the electrical energy needs of more than 40 million end users. To reliably serve customers, MISO created markets to maximize the efficient use of the region’s existing generation and transmission. From a technological perspective, no energy market system had ever been built to dispatch the number of power plants and miles of transmission the size and scale of MISO’s region. The energy markets project team chose GE Grid Solutions and AIMMS to develop this system. Each day, MISO’s energy markets accept or reject offers and bids based on AIMMS-based optimization algorithms. The solution earned the team the 2011 Franz Edelman Award.
