Enverus comes full CRCL in latest power and renewables acquisition

Addition of cloud-based algorithms and modeling for wind and solar generation forecasts improves power trading by reducing risk

byEnverus

AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 9, 2023) — Enverus, the most trusted energy-dedicated SaaS company, announced today it has acquired CRCL Solutions, a provider of cloud-based algorithms and modeling for wind and solar generation forecasts. CRCL Solutions provides a wide range of advanced forecasting data to help power traders make informed decisions and reduce trading risk.

“CRCL Solutions is a key to unlocking part of Enverus’ future and enabling us to grow our footprint in power and renewables by creating more intelligent connections and opportunities across the energy ecosystem,” said Jeff Hughes, CEO of Enverus. “Accurate predictions of wind and solar production have become a necessary building block for everyone involved in the power industry. To meet the needs of our customers we must forecast this production, and we must do it well.”

As renewable energy capacity continues to grow to meet the requirements of a changing U.S. energy market, power traders and plant operators are increasingly reliant upon accurate, granular wind and solar forecasting data to identify arbitrage opportunities, reduce trading risk and optimize asset deployments.

CRCL Solutions was founded in 2021 by Thomas Sherman and Daniel Vassallo. Both earned a doctorate from the University of Notre Dame and their collective expertise lies in the field of environmental fluid mechanics, with a focus on developing mathematical and machine-learning algorithms to model natural, environmental systems. Their recent work has spanned developing a novel algorithmic suite to improve weather forecasting, and creating a technological pipeline that transforms raw weather forecast data into wind and solar generation forecasts at the plant level.

“By combining CRCL’s core technology with Enverus’ data resources, CRCL can improve its current product offerings and create entirely new energy forecasting products that were previously not possible. We believe Enverus is a perfect partner to develop the next generation of wind and solar forecasting,” Sherman said.

“CRCL was founded on the idea that everyone in the energy industry should have access to the best renewable power information. Enverus’ resources will accelerate our R&D goals and provide access to a much wider audience. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to help achieve our mission,” Vassallo said.

“The intermittent nature of wind or solar generation is the fundamental change in the grid that impacts net load grid congestion, and ultimately price,” said Bernadette Johnson, general manager of Power and Renewables at Enverus. “CRCL Solutions’ offerings are complementary to what we’ve been building for years, and together, we will create more useful and granular forecasts that enhance solutions and diversification amid an ever-changing energy transition.”

Since 2017, Enverus has grown its power and renewables segment through organic innovation and acquisitions including CRCL Solutions, RatedPower, Energy Acuity and Marginal Unit. Bernadette Johnson will oversee CRCL Solution’s integration.
