Our detailed understanding of the physical behavior and constraints of the power system is embedded in our grid and market operations software. We offer an integrated line of software solutions that addresses all facets of energy markets, from centralized wholesale markets to independent energy retailers and aggregators. Growing trends such as dynamic pricing and demand side management are emphasized. Our domain dominance within the energy value chain and integrated expertise in the market with proprietary technologies makes us a clear leader in our space.


We also provide advisory services for developing and commercializing advanced clean energy technologies as well as supplying technical, operational, and strategic consulting to oil, gas, and chemical majors, energy resource companies, technology owners, governments, and investors. In addition, Nexant is a national leader in the innovative design, implementation, and evaluation of many of the largest commercial, industrial, and residential energy efficiency incentive and demand side management programs in the United States.
