Investors

Nearly 80% of projects in the queue do not make it to commercial operations. Investors need to understand where competing projects are and what the siting suggests about the likelihood of eventual project success.

  • Analyze the potential for success of competing projects in a crowded project queue.
  • Compare and evaluate the projects and portfolios of various developers for the likelihood of success.

Comprehensive Power Asset Siting With Enverus

  • Access accurate solar- and wind-weighted LMP information.
  • Manage risk with real-time and day-ahead market pricing analysis.
  • Decompose the impacts of grid congestion on power flows and, ultimately, LMPs.

Reduce Siting Risks by Understanding the Basis Risk

Ignoring basis risk when siting a project exposes you to potentially significant financial losses and project failure risk. Enverus Power & Renewables solutions assist in the evaluation and decomposition of LMPs, helping you identifying the most promising points of interconnection.

Assess future locational risks

Reduce due diligence costs

Reduce risk with full-scale studies

Your Advantage

  • Evaluate the risk of future location-based fluctuations in node-zone pricing.
  • Reduce due diligence expenses by screening locations with the most favorable node-zone basis differential.
  • Conduct comprehensive analyses, including congestion and available transmission capacity assessments to identify the most compelling sites.

Boost Project Siting Confidence With Advanced ATC

Elevate your project success by leveraging ATC for precise point of interconnection (POI) selection, ensuring heightened confidence in your site choices. Uncover the most dynamic POIs over specific timeframes and the reasons influencing ATC, empowering strategic decision-making for optimal project outcomes.

Find Optimal Project Sites

Avoid Risky POI

Reduce Injection Study Costs

Your Advantage

  • Discover optimal points of interconnection (POls) with desired
    ATC
  • Gain insights into which POls are the most volatile over a specific timeframes
  • Understand the underlying reasons behind ATC

Assess Battery Storage Potential

Properly assessing battery storage potential reduces development costs and increases the likelihood of project success.

Find power storage opportunities

Maximize project potential

Assess risks from nearby power development

Your Advantage

  • Quickly identify promising areas for battery storage development with storage arbitrage analytics.
  • Find out if battery storage is a profitable addition to your power assets by filtering for areas with high volatility, peak and trough differential, and DA/RT spreads.
  • Understand how storage assets may fit into the different point of the grid given the reasons around congestion and the drivers of pricing.
