The use of modern simulation tools when planing renewable independent power projects minimizes the risks of these projects. Simulation tools can also help to find the best project site for a special technology or the best technology for a special site. However, a user-friendly powerful simulation tool that provides detailed technical as well as economical analysis of multiple technology types such as photovoltaics, wind energy and solar thermal power plants did not exist until now.
The new simulation environment greenius offers all these possibilities. The main emphasis when developing this software was on the user-friendly interface and the calculation performance. Some simulation results demonstrate the capabilities of the greenius software.
