Comprehensive Market Evaluation Tools for Storage (CoMETS) is our proprietary suite of web based models that offer dispatch modeling, revenue analysis, optimal value stacking and full financial modeling of energy storage projects for in-front of the meter, behind the retail meter and microgrid layouts.
CoMETS Wholesale Model offers the ability to model Stand-Alone and Hybrid Asset Configurations
An hourly optimization model for grid connected stand-alone storage or renewable energy integrated hybrid resources using multiple value streams available in wholesale energy markets. The model co-optimizes the dispatch across energy, capacity, and ancillary service markets. The model provides complete project finance model that is useful to project developers, financiers and investors.
CES has used CoMETS Wholesale Model on behalf of technology firms and project developers to evaluate numerous advanced energy storage technologies in various markets. We have also applied the model to help developers in utility contract bids.
The model optimizes dispatch of behind the meter energy storage and distributed energy resources (DERs) to manage demand charges, time-of-use energy shifting, self-consumption of renewable energy, demand response and wholesale energy market participation
For dispatch simulation of microgrid layouts with a variety of generators such as solar, wind, and diesel coupled with battery energy storage systems. The model provides insights into technical aspects such as grid interactivity, islanding operations, and commercial aspects like levelized cost of energy.
CoMETS offers revenue analysis from participation in Energy, Capacity, and Ancillary Services Markets within all organized North American Independent System Operator and Regional Transmission Organization wholesale markets.
