RatedPower is on a mission to digitalize the renewable energy industry and maximize clean energy’s potential through cloud-based solutions.
Through pvDesign—their software to automate and optimize the study, analysis, design, and engineering of photovoltaic plants in all its stages—RatedPower helps companies optimize the design and engineering of utility-scale solar PV plants, maximize their profitability, and reduce energy costs (LCOE). The software has reportedly reduced by 5% the LCOE of solar plants designed with it, which translates to a 20% higher solar plant profitability.
pvDesign optimizes the design and carries out the engineering of utility-scale solar photovoltaic plants, reducing 85% of the time spent in designing PV, from 4-6 weeks to under 2 minutes.
Having developed more than 43 GW in more than 190 countries, pvDesign brings value to developers, IPPs, contractors, investors, and manufacturers, helping them make better decisions, democratizing engineering knowledge and boosting the deployment of solar plants worldwide.
RheEnergise is bringing innovation to pumped energy storage, with a solution called High-Density Hydro®. HD Hydro is a grid-scale energy storage solution, providing 2 to 16 hours of energy storage in the 10MW to 50MW power range.
RheEnergise projects work just like traditional pumped-hydro (PHS) but instead of using water, an environmentally benign fluid is used with 2.5x the density of water in a closed loop system. The introduction of a high-density fluid means that projects can be built on small hills rather than mountains, which in turn means there are tens of thousands more suitable sites available.
HD Hydro maintains the best-in-class economics associated with PHS while overcoming the multiple challenges associated with PHS: lack of sites; time to build; water abstraction; environmental concerns. RheEnergise’s High-Density Hydro energy storage is ultra-low cost, fast to deploy and globally scalable, facilitating zero-carbon power grids.
