Microgrid software leader’s commitment to ongoing innovation results in better systems for customers, advancements in renewable energy industry
Boulder, Colorado — May 31, 2017 — HOMER Energy, developer of the industry-leading HOMER® Pro software for modeling hybrid renewable energy systems and the global leader in microgrid decision analysis and design optimization, announces that it has released improved, more powerful reporting capabilities for its HOMER Pro software. For the first time, HOMER Energy delivers a simple, yet comprehensive way to create custom reports, enabling users of HOMER Pro intuitive modeling software to quickly analyze and report on HOMER’s optimization results. These improvements will help increase efficiency for optimizing microgrid design in sectors ranging from village power to military bases.

These improvements will help increase efficiency for optimizing microgrid design in sectors ranging from village power to military bases.
As part of its commitment to its mission of “Clean Power Everywhere,” HOMER Energy is focused on continuous improvement to its flagship HOMER product, which is the industry standard for microgrid feasibility and optimization.
“The improved reporting capabilities will have wide-reaching benefits for both HOMER customers and the sectors within which we operate, by making the trip from analysis to bankable reporting as efficient as possible,” says HOMER CEO and co-founder Dr. Peter Lilienthal. “HOMER Pro is now a leaner, more efficient tool for optimizing microgrid design in all sectors, from village power and island utilities to grid-connected campuses and military bases.”
HOMER Pro’s improved reporting seamlessly integrates the proposal process, from running a simulation and finding an optimal system design to producing a proposal complete with system architecture, economic analysis against base case, and cash flow analysis. Users can now create detailed, highly useful custom reports from scratch, setting report structure and exporting with just two steps. These include analyses that are pulled from a broad library of reportable data, formatted, and then combined into formalized reports. This feature extends the power of HOMER Pro’s time series reporting, where high-resolution data can easily be calculated and charted.
Key features include:
- Combined standard report sections featuring configurable reporting, with user-defined analyses for rapid building of custom reports. A broad library of standard report sections comes out-of-the-box, from cash flow to fuel and emissions summaries, allowing users to go from modeling to end report in record time.
- Format reports with custom logos to comply with corporate brand guidelines
- Export formats to support any reporting process – PDF, HTML, DOCX, RTF
“We’re excited to be at the forefront of the rapidly developing microgrid market, helping our customers and partners design hybrid energy systems that change lives, change the world, and change the future,” adds Lilienthal. “Our ongoing innovation and updating of systems is all focused on one goal: supporting the creation of microgrids in every corner of the world, both grid-connected and remote, by providing our users with systems that offer sound economics, higher reliability, and an increased capacity for integrating clean energy sources.”
