NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GridMarket, the distributed energy marketplace, announces the launch of its leading edge data platform. The company simplifies and expedites distributed energy deployment by providing resources that reduce the time and costs associated with developing projects. The data platform is offered in addition to GridMarket's existing portal of live project opportunities.
The platform provides a searchable database curating and warehousing property and market intelligence across over 1.4 million properties. Critical prospecting and system design resources offer solutions providers access to new markets and opportunities through data, analytics, and regulatory support.
"Initiatives like New York's REV and clean energy standards across the country should drive renewable growth, but for such programs and carbon mandates to succeed, project development must be streamlined," said GridMarket CEO, Nick Davis. "Soft costs account for 15% - 35% of project budgets. GridMarket gives solutions providers actionable support to reduce project costs, helping governments, utilities, and corporations achieve clean energy goals."
A distinguishing platform feature is the recommendation engine. Each property includes an opportunity assessment and estimated size range for solar PV, battery storage, CHP, and fuel cell installations, as well as energy efficiency and boiler retrofit intelligence. Platform users can rapidly review properties by recommendations to identify or eliminate opportunities.
Intelligence available falls into six main categories:
- Technology Recommendations
- Property Characteristics
- Energy and Environment
- Incentives and Tariffs
- Property Financials and Ownership
- Permitting and Interconnection
Solutions providers can search by dozens of filters, including recommended technology sizing, OPEX, and space breakdowns—then utilize this intelligence to source customers, assess market opportunity, inform proposals, and update product design.
The platform's demo feature allows prospective users to explore database functionality through a sample of provided properties.
GridMarket is a project facilitation platform initially supported by leading utilities and governments to simplify and expedite the deployment of distributed energy assets. Platform offerings include a project portal of live opportunities, a searchable property database warehousing infrastructure and market intelligence for millions of buildings, market defining task force meetings, and project development support for customers and providers.
