AURORAxmp is a comprehensive power forecasting tool used in the energy industry. With their new v11.4 release, they have added Gurobi as an available solver.

Morgan Dennis, Lead Developer from EPIS, shared, “We are excited to have Gurobi as an option for solving optimizations in our software because of its clearly superior speed. From LP to QP to MIP models, Gurobi showed a significant speed advantage over our default solver, thus providing our end-users the ability to do more rigorous analysis and have faster solution times.”

“We are very pleased that EPIS has chosen to offer Gurobi as an available option to their users,” said Tracy Pesanelli, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Gurobi. “This continues the trend of leading ISVs choosing Gurobi not only for the performance our solvers deliver to their end-users, but also for the support we provide ISVs and our long-term commitment to the continued enhancement of our solvers.”
