post-thumb Podcast: Learning From Previous Power Outages

June 2018 - Jake Anderson

Background After our joint appearance MarketScale’s Energy Industry podcast, Eric had the opportunity to go back on and discuss some of his previous Ph.D. work focused on mass power outages. These types of outages are a good example of the need for strong modeling and planning capabilities to ensure that the grid maintains stability. These types of models are the foundation of Anderson Optimization. We’d love if you gave it a listen.

post-thumb Software Strives to Simplify Solar Project Siting

January 2018 - Jake Anderson

Background In late 2017, Solar Power World published an article discussing cooperatives and their integration of community solar. The article mentioned that one of the most difficult aspects of renewable projects is early-stage siting. Given our expertise in this area, we agreed to write an article that would give readers a look at some of these challenges as well as some of the ways that developers are using software and GIS capabilities such as ours to address these difficulties.
