Targeting DER interventions with maximum value for the system and end customer is key to successful DER led transformation. Vrinda has developed a four-step customer analytic process to identify DER opportunities.
Economic and Financial Analysis
Evaluating a DER intervention requires not only a model but an understanding of your business practices, tariff applications and local regulatory constructs. Vrinda helps in customizing economic and financial models, so that utilities can make decisions based on facts, not emotions.
Traditional vendor-buyer relationship is no longer sufficient where new technology and business models demands risk and reward sharing. We work with our customers to help think through partnership models which optimize risks and rewards
Procurement Process Management
Utilities procuring new technology solutions or buying output from new technologies, are required to make decisions with very limited information. We manage procurement processes, identifying critical parameters to provide assurance to our customers.
Business Case Development
DER technologies are evolving, and it is often a challenge to justify investments using traditional cost benefit analysis. We have developed business cases for DERMS, interconnection portals, solar and storage projects to identify present and future values and investment grade business cases.
