About HOMER Energy

HOMER Energy is the world’s leading microgrid modeling software company, used by over 200,000 people in 193 countries. The Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Energy Resources (HOMER) software helps engineers and project developers navigate the complexities of designing cost-effective and reliable microgrids that combine traditional and renewable generation sources.  

HOMER evaluates thousands of variables to compare value streams, assess system options, and provide risk-mitigation and cost reduction strategies. With its logical and intuitive interface, the HOMER software is easy for both professionals and non-engineers to utilize. The software also includes hundreds of preconfigured components to offer detailed insight, while addressing the modeling requirements of all major microgrid segments.
HOMER software is trusted by governments, financial institutions, military agencies, utilities, energy systems integrators, and NGOs to design hybrid power systems. In the last decade, HOMER has demonstrated its effectiveness for analyzing thousands of complex distributed energy systems, including grid-tied hybrid renewable microgrids and situations where the grid is insufficiently reliable, such as islands and remote communities. In December of 2019, HOMER Energy was purchased by UL.
