Envision Energy has announced the release of Envision Ensight Solar, an analytics software suite for solar PV projects.
According to the company, the new product offers a way for solar managers and owners to rapidly identify which sites are performing poorly and precisely why. The analytics algorithms automatically validate input data quality and flag data issues. The system then categorizes and analyzes operational data to create meaningful metrics; detailed asset performance insights; and actionable recommendations to improve plant performance, reliability and overall financial outcomes.
Ensight Solar is offered as a stand-alone Software as a Service application that can be adapted to customers’ existing data warehouse systems, or it can integrated into Envision’s solar monitoring and control applications suite. Both deployments leverage Envision’s scalable EnOS energy management software platform.
Ensight is the result of extensive research and development efforts at Envision Energy’s Global Solar Center of Excellence in Redwood City, Calif., the company notes.
“The detailed analytics delivered by Ensight address a fundamental need and a major gap in the industry: how to leverage large volumes of raw data which are mostly never used to create intelligent actionable insights to improve the operational and financial performance of the underlying assets,” says Kam Mofid, general manager of solar for the company.
