Optimal Auctions Power Auctions - $113,000,000,000 in Power Sold

Optimal Auctions power auctions have been used to purchase $113 billion worth of power around the world. We provide experts for consulting and the best auction software in the world to run your high stakes power auctions. Our cusomters are so satisfied with the results that they get from our power auctions, that they continue to come back to us year after year for their auction needs, with one client just finishing their 14th year with us.

Our power auctions use our Clock auction software to run a Simultaneous Descending Clock Auction (SDCA). It allows dozens of purchasers to provide capacity, with each purchaser determining how to slice up their capacity into tranches. It also allows hundreds of simultaneous providers acting as bidders. The software can handle any size power auction, and can be completely customized to meet your auction needs
