HOMER Energy by UL introduced the update launch to its HOMER Grid software in model 1.7.
The new model of HOMER Grid 1.7 includes a proposal producing tool that enables designers of hybrid distributed energy methods to supply presentation-ready reviews that display how renewable energy enhancements will assist scale back the general value of energy. The software has the flexibility to rapidly create streamlined, graphics-driven proposals that talk system modeling outcomes to each technical and non-technical audiences and successfully convey the project’s worth to clients. The software’s new reporting characteristic not solely presents key facets of the proposed system’s technical efficiency but additionally summarizes the financial worth streams from which the shopper could profit. Each proposal includes value comparisons between the present energy system and the proposed system throughout regular utility operations and through outages. This includes an in depth define of financial savings from incentives and demand response packages.
With customizable formatting choices and design options, this built-in tool consolidates advanced energy system information into an comprehensible report that outlines the lifetime money flows in addition to the generation and storage particulars of the proposed hybrid energy system.
“HOMER Grid represented our entry into the grid-connected, distributed generation market that is rapidly expanding due to both the dramatic drop in the cost of solar and storage and the needs of both utilities and their customers to have clean, reliable, affordable electricity,” stated Dr. Peter Lilienthal, CEO of HOMER Energy by UL. “But it was missing a way for our customers, the project developers and designers, to quickly turn the results from HOMER Grid into an easily digestible value proposition for their customers. This new proposal tool does that and helps earn customer trust by instantly generating insightful system overviews.”
Unpredictable prices within the type of demand fees and time of use charges usually penalize amenities by basing their charges on peak load along with the constructing’s complete energy consumption. Faced with these greater prices, resiliency considerations and rising value uncertainty, many industrial and industrial amenities are turning to solar + storage. Hybrid distributed energy methods that embody solar photovoltaics and energy storage may help scale back demand fees and energy consumption, however modeling demand fees and energy storage will be difficult. HOMER software has been addressing that evaluation for over 25 years and continues to be a market chief for offering hybrid energy system modeling.
With its proposal producing characteristic offering a transparent and complete interpretation of engineering insights, HOMER Grid’s software for simulating grid-tied hybrid renewable energy tasks now gives project builders a definite market benefit whereas enhancing system reliability and resilience.
