Advisian recognizes the increasing demand for alternative energy solutions. Our team analyzes, develops and delivers solutions that increase reliability and resilience, reduce environmental impact, and cut costs across the power industry.
As the energy industry continues to see proliferation of distributed energy resources (DERs), more and more often we see these developments including a variety of different technologies. Solar PV installations (roof-top systems, solar car port systems, ground mount utility scale systems), energy storage systems, combined heat and power (CHP) facilities, natural gas turbines or microturbines, fuel cells, and diesel generators are being deployed in combination with demand response (DR) and energy efficiency (EE) measures.
By combining technologies, utilities and developers can enhance the reliability of traditional electricity supply by creating comprehensive distributed energy solutions or microgrids; typically, the greatest benefit to increased reliability comes in supporting critical infrastructure, health and safety, continuous industrial processes and emergency services. However, adding technologies and microgrid capability also increases project costs. This is where Advisian can help.
Our core capabilities include:
- Technoeconomic Assessment – analyse financial and technical viability and provide DER modelling, CAPEX/OPEX optimization, and system design
- Regulatory Policy Analysis – understanding how policy and tariff choices impact technology choices and system design; strategic regulatory policy strategy and planning to support tariffs that change the distributed business model
- Practical Application of Engineering Principals – understanding the system impacts of distributed projects on the macrogrid, how these systems interconnect and operate, and developing implementable solutions
