icon HOMER Pro Modules

HOMER Pro can be supplemented with additional modules for even more powerful modeling capabilities. The base license lets you simulate and optimize literally an infinite number of systems using solar PV, wind, batteries, diesel generators, and even simple grid connections. You can then add capabilities to that license, which:

You can create a completely customized HOMER Pro license by adding only those modules that you know you will require. We also have three Module Packs available that group together popular sets of modules, offered at a discount by buying the pack: Advanced Off-Grid, Advanced On-Grid, and Expert.

Biomass

Allows users to model biomass gasification and biogas-fueled or cofired generators. It adds the biomass resource, the biogas fuel, and the biogas-fueled or biogas cofired generator.
Learn more >>

Hydro

Adds the hydro resource and the hydro component. Users can specify the stream flow in the Hydro resource, either as monthly values or as an imported time series. Ideal for systems that include conventional, small, or micro hydroelectricity generation.

Combined Heat and Power

For users who model building heating systems. Types of systems could include boilers, cogeneration, heat recovery, and any system that demands or supplies heat energy.
Learn more >>

Advanced Load

Users who create models with both AC and DC loads, or who want to model deferrable loads such as pumping or HVAC, should use the Advanced Load module.
Learn more >>

Advanced Grid

For users who will model grid-connected systems with varying grid prices, detailed grid specification, or off-grid systems where grid extension is a possibility.
Learn more >>

Hydrogen

Allows users to model systems that generate, store, and consume hydrogen. It is ideal for users who model fuel cells, remote off-grid operations, large industrial processes, or any system with hydrogen production, storage, or consumption.

Advanced Storage

Unlocks the Modified Kinetic Battery Model (MKBM) in HOMER. The MKBM includes rate-dependent losses, changes in capacity with temperature, variable depth-of-discharge for cycle life, and increased degradation rate at higher temperatures.
Learn more >>

Multi-Year

Allows users to model changes that can occur over the course of a project, such as PV degradation, grid price escalation, load growth, and fuel price escalation.
Learn more >>

MATLAB Link

Allows users to write their own dispatch algorithm in MATLAB, which will integrate with the HOMER Pro software.

Module Packs

Module packs are designed to help you find the right set of modules for your application quickly. With the exception of the Expert Package, which includes every module, you can add additional modules to your license in addition to those included in the package, either at the time of purchase or later, as an upgrade. Pricing shown is for a 1-year standard license as a means to compare package prices to purchasing separately. Prices for other license terms will be different.

Advanced Off-Grid

Includes the 5 most common modules required for more advanced assessment of off-grid microgrids: Biomass, Hydro, Advanced Load, Advanced Storage, and Multi-Year
Package price: $1,000
$1,175 if purchased separately

Who should buy: The Advanced Off-Grid Package is designed for project developers, systems integrators, EPC and construction firms, and others who are doing middle and late stage design assessment for off-grid systems with single generators. If you are comparing options for Grid Extension to purely off-grid systems, the Advanced Grid module should be added as well.

Advanced On-Grid

Includes the 5 most common modules required for accurate modeling of grid-connected systems: Advanced Grid, Advanced Load, Advanced Storage, Multi-Year, and Combined Heat and Power
Package price: $1,250
$1,375 if purchased individually

Who should buy: The Advanced On-Grid Package is designed primarily for anyone modeling reliable grid-connected systems, which often include Combined Heat and Power. If you are modeling systems where the grid is mostly unreliable, and there is no CHP, you should probably purchase a base license with Advanced Grid, Advanced Load, Advanced Storage, and Multi-Year.

Expert

Includes all 9 HOMER Pro modules
Package price: $1,500
$1,875 if purchased individually

Who should buy: The Expert Package is for companies working in one or more different applications, and who need different modules at different times, or for researchers who are exploring new equipment, control and dispatch algorithms, or advanced capabilities such as hydrogen.
