“I was pleased to be involved in the development of EnergyMetric. The result is a marvellous application which is extremely efficient and useful. Our generation activities include both solar and wind and I have enjoyed exploring scenarios with both technologies. I find the application particularly useful for prospecting and strategic site selection, considering both the variable resource and financial perspectives.”
Frederic Petit, Director of Development, UNELCO Engie
“Having seen a recent demonstration of EnergyMetric I was very impressed with the application. From my experience in the renewables sector I can see particular value for aspirational energy companies who are planning the development of complex hybrid portfolios and need sound guidance to strengthen project business cases.”
Ramon Fiestas, Independent Energy Consultant
“When we were introduced to EnergyMetric we immediately saw the unique, impactful and far-reaching scope and benefits of this cutting-edge modelling software. EnergyMetric can help our members navigate the path to fulfilling their ambitious renewable energy commitments. The ability to model and understand different renewable generation scenarios with this intuitive application really is a game-changer.”
Kiesha Farnum, Director Public Sector Projects, Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator
“Our Renewable Energy MSc students thoroughly enjoyed the full-day workshop provided by the EnergyMetric team. A priority for us is to prepare our students for productive and successful careers and so the applied, real-world nature of the capacity auction exercise was an excellent fit! We will definitely look for more opportunities to use the EnergyMetric software.”
Mounia Karim, Renewable Energy MSc Course Director, Cranfield University
