Benefits

Benefits of power plant portfolio optimization with ResOpt

Human decision makers are no longer able to maintain an overview over highly complex and cross-linked decision structures. For this reason, portfolio deployment managers find it difficult to reach the best decisions. At best, their optimum may reach 90%. The economic benefits of software supported power plant resource optimization thus arises from this potential of 1% - 10% cost savings or increased profit per year through software optimized decisions. These savings may be estimated through an upstream analysis phase as a return on investment (ROI) resulting from investing in a tailored KISTERS system solution. This will state profit contributions from the various deployment decision processes. Power plant optimization systems typically have an extremely short ROI.

The overall economic and ecological effect achievable through power plant optimization make the deployment of resource optimization solutions of increasing economic interest, especially in light of medium-term energy procurement price increases forcing bottlenecks (including system bottlenecks) on optimal and transparent deployment decisions.
