WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

RBAC’s GPCM provided us with the flexibility and capabilities we needed for gas market simulation. We use GPCM to forecast monthly gas prices, which is a key input in our capacity planning & generation planning (CAPEX model & Aurora Model). We also run various sensitivities & scenarios. Apart for this regular usage, we also use GPCM during our IRP process. I would recommend GPCM to others looking for gas market simulation. GPCM is very easy to use and is an industry standard. RBAC’s customer service is excellent. They are very accessible, quick, friendly & knowledgeable. They go an extra mile to support you.

Today I was intensely working with GPCM / GDS to isolate and alleviate some Demand constraints. I was moving between GDS and GPCM and within GPCM between zones, demand links, customers, locations and the Pipeline Use Report. I can’t tell you what a joy it was to be able to move so quickly between the various forms whether they be in form view or datasheet view. I know I’m picking up speed as I learn the database, but how you’ve got the database set up so you can drill down and move around and back so efficiently is really appreciated. I just thought I’d pass that along to you. Thank you.

GPCM does a great job of running what if scenarios so you can get book ends of what you are trying to analyze. We use it for long term analysis for infrastructure, supply and new demand scenarios. We are able to provide analysis for any long term deal that comes into our business. I would recommend GPCM to any organization looking to do mid, long term analysis.

Senior Natural Gas Analyst
As a senior fuel consultant, when I present gas forecast results to clients, regulators, and stakeholder groups, I’m confident that with GPCM® I’m offering the industry-standard model maintained by the industry’s best modeling team. I appreciate the responsive staff at RBAC and their constant efforts to make their product better. I also appreciate their intellectual integrity and transparent processes. My colleagues and I depend on the ease with which we can customize the inputs to GPCM. Its flexibility is a big asset to our fuel practice.

GPCM is a powerful modeling tool that can capture the fundamental market trends in the North America natural gas market and provide insightful outcomes. It has been an effective platform for me to work on a variety of analysis and projects for all different of customers. Also, GPCM comes with not only a great software tool and database, but also a team of great support staff that has always been so helpful every step along the way. No matter what type of adventure I am working on the model, the team is always ready to help and also always willing to listen and consider customers’ feedback and suggestions. The gas market is very dynamic and full of uncertainty, but GPCM has been very good at bringing in new features and improvements all the time to be ahead of the market.

Manager, Market Analysis
The GPCM model provides users the ability to customize inputs and assumptions to perform scenario analysis on current and expected market conditions. The data provided by not only the framework of the model but also in the detailed output is essential to calibrating and validating forecasts. RBAC does a great job of providing quarterly calibration to ensure users have the most accurate data available prior to performing analysis.

EVA's primary use of the GPCM model is to guide our forecasts of both short-term and long-term supply & demand balances and price estimates for North American benchmarks. EVA leverages the GPCM model to perform custom scenario analysis to support its routine publications as well as our consulting practice.

GPCM has greatly increased our modeling efficiency, not only from ease of use as our old processes required a large amount of setup and run time, but also from a data transparency and forecast accuracy point of view. Instead of spending time calibrating several in-house models that run slower than the GPCM model, EVA energy modelers can spend more time calibrating GPCM model results and the potential market impact to best serve its clients.

EVA would recommend GPCM and RBAC to others for several reasons. A few key reasons are: 1) the GPCM model has become the market standard for natural gas analysis, incorporating the GPCM model gives your firm immediate credibility. 2) the RBAC team does an amazing job training and providing support. 3) the GPCM model itself is one of the easiest models you can customize and use.

EVA is proud to be a user and would highly recommend the GPCM model to anyone looking to perform custom analysis of the natural gas market.
