Multi-year Features of HOMER Grid Software Can Help Solar+Storage Developers Predict Financial Impacts of Utility Tariff Increases


Experts and new users of the HOMER Grid software are driving enhancements that will enable more powerful and accurate modeling of grid-tied distributed energy systems. Released today, the new version of HOMER Grid for optimizing behind-the-meter distributed generation features a new Multiyear Analysis function that calculates impacts of future changes like utility price increases and load growth:

Locating Pittsburgh Microgrids for Climate Resilience and Calculating their Value

A University of Pittsburgh economist who specializes in analyzing the financial risk of climate impacts is working on calculating the value of microgrids to help provide greater resilience in cities. She’s using spacial techniques to determine where microgrids should be located to provide maximum service, and she’s using HOMER Pro calculate a cost-benefit analysis:

HOMER Grid: Modeling future changes in microgrids

Growth in microgrid markets worldwide is leading energy developers to ask how they might adapt distributed renewable energy projects to the future. Now both HOMER Pro and HOMER Grid have multi-year modules, which can model the cost of utility rate escalations, load growth – and the degradation of PV and batteries over time.

IRENA Press Release: Innovation paves way for next stage of global energy transformation

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) says that meeting Paris Agreement goals will require an 85% share of renewable energy in electricity generation by 2050. That requires integration of variable renewable resources. A new guide to energy innovation is intended to help governments meet those goals:
