To make the jump into the coming era of clean power dominating the power grid, Denowatts has totally reimagined how performance management of solar assets is done. To support the next generation of solar power, the company has developed a new, integrated model for data collection and analysis based on advanced benchmarking technology using digital twin processing, AI, and IoT interoperability. The solution delivers ISO 17025 accredited testing and calibration for realtime performance assessment. Denowatts’ goal is to give clients faster access to more accurate data and analyses than is available from traditional performance assessment models.
The service we offer is very different than anything else in the market
The core technology behind Denowatts’ service is Digital Twin Benchmarking. The solution entails a patented piece of hardware and software which allows IoT sensors to conduct a real time simulation, or a digital twin, of a solar array and project the results on to a business intelligence platform, thereby answering—in near real time—the most pressing asset management and performance enquiries that stakeholders may have. Denowatts’ real-time Digital Twin Benchmarking provides highly accurate and continuous dynamic performance assessments for assets of all sizes. Remotely managed hardware provides continuous data quality control while wireless, self-powered IoT sensors can be installed and validated in minutes versus hours or days. Automated analytics and reporting simplify decision making and r educe s taffing n eeds. B y o ffering a ll t his a s a s ervice costing a fraction of what traditional performance management arrangements cost, Denowatts is hoping to disrupt an inefficient marketplace by redefining how performance management is done.
As the company grows, Denowatts plans to expand its community of solar owners and operators while continuously leveraging the efficiencies of AI and interoperability with other supporting industry services. While the past decade has brought great improvements to solar reliability and affordability, the challenges of the coming decade will demand asset management solutions that will enable a new generation of clean powerplant operators to scale and become dominant energy suppliers to the power grid.
“The industry would soon seek the interoperability of services like energy modeling, and predictive analytics behind solar products, alongside other digital services and boots-on-theground services, including drone and ground-based inspection service. All those things need to talk to each other, and that is where a lot of our focus is in right now,” concludes Leary.
