Energy Modeling Software for Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
The HOMER energy modeling software is a powerful tool for designing and analyzing hybrid power systems, which contain a mix of conventional generators, combined heat and power, wind turbines, solar photovoltaics, batteries, fuel cells, hydropower, biomass and other inputs. It is currently used all over the world by tens of thousands of people.
For either grid-tied or off-grid environments, HOMER helps determine how variable resources such as wind and solar can be optimally integrated into hybrid systems.
Engineers and non-professionals alike use HOMER to run simulations of different energy systems, compare the results and get a realistic projection of their capital and operating expenses. HOMER determines the economic feasibility of a hybrid energy system, optimizes the system design and allows users to really understand how hybrid renewable systems work.
As distributed generation and renewable power projects continue to be the fastest growing segment of the energy industry, HOMER can serve utilities, telecoms, systems integrators, and many other types of project developers - to mitigate the financial risk of their hybrid power projects.
HOMER Energy provides software, services, and an on-line community to the diverse group of people who are using HOMER to design hybrid systems.
