                     Decision analysis tools
Ascend Analytics provides the energy industry with analysis tools which enable optimal decisions from the next hour to the next decade and beyond. Their enterprise- ready analytic platform provides for integrated physical and financial decisions. The BatterySimm valuation tool identifies configurations and operating strategies to maximize value for battery storage projects. BatterySimm finds the most cost-effective battery configuration for a given node or utility system, and discovers the optimal dispatch strategy by co-optimizing between energy and ancillary services. BatterySimm’s advanced algorithms help developers, investors, and utilities define and implement strategies to co-optimize the joint value for both energy and ancillary services markets. It has three different modules to maximize project value through any point of the project
life: optimal sizing for energy cycling capabilities and duration specifications; valuate projects under both perfect and imperfect foresight of energy and ancillary service prices; and determine optimal operating strategies for ISO bidding and integrated utility operations.
