+ Grid Modeling

The largest and most complex problems to solve in the electric power sector require a robust analysis of the entire grid. The deployment of smart grid assets such as energy storage, wind generation, solar generation, hybrid storage + natural gas systems, and non-wires solutions is so impactful that as deployments increase they will fundamentally alter grid operations. This creates a challenging environment in which to predict which projects will be profitable and which will fail. Strategen uses its unique, proprietary modeling capabilities to create custom client roadmaps from the current, carbon-intensive grid to the smart, dynamic, low carbon grid of the future.
