Aurora Solar Surpasses 4 Million Solar Project Designed Milestone

Aurora Solar | October 29, 2020

Aurora Solar—the business' driving programming stage for appropriated sun oriented and capacity—reported today that the quantity of PV ventures planned in their product outperformed the 4,000,000 achievement. Significantly more critical is that Aurora Solar arrived at 4 million activities from 3 million in only a half year.

"This is a big milestone for us, but more importantly, for the solar industry as a whole," said Samuel Adeyemo, Co-founder of Aurora Solar. "The industry is growing fast, and we're excited to be able to provide solutions that can help it scale even faster."

Utilizing Aurora, sun based experts can perform distant sun oriented concealing examination, plan sunlight based and capacity frameworks, estimate how much energy the PV framework will deliver, compute power charge reserve funds, decide the quantity of batteries for reinforcement power, produce deals proposition with financing alternatives, and significantly more.

Virtually all sunlight based organizations are utilizing in any event one outsider programming, and a lion's share of them are utilizing programming explicitly for PV framework plan. This bodes well. New client procurement costs are high, and programming can help decrease delicate expenses and increment work process productivity. Sunlight based organizations don't need to construct their own devices for framework plan or tasks; they have choices to redistribute for arrangements—a sign the sun powered industry is developing.

"Site visits are nearly a thing of the past, and the design workflow is much faster and smoother using Aurora," said Matt Webb, Sunpro Solar's Director of Design. "Aurora's cutting-edge technology allows my team to get access to more data points with greater accuracy for any site."

The sun powered industry encountered a huge log jam in establishments with work stoppages and vulnerability from COVID-19, however there are numerous hopeful signs that point towards the business' versatility and quality. The U.S. Sunlight based Market Insight Q3 2020 report delivered by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie is guaging a general 37% yearly development this year—down only 6% from pre-pandemic figures. For private sun powered, establishments weren't as seriously affected as initially expected because of facilitating of severe sanctuary set up orders and installer plan of action developments.

Industry Recognition

Aurora Solar's strong high growth is coupled with wide industry recognition as the leading software.

Aurora Solar was announced as a finalist for the S&P's 2020 Global Energy Awards (winners will be announced in December)
Aurora was voted by the community and awarded the Solar Power World's Leadership in Solar Energy Award for software multiple times—most of any software
In early 2019, Aurora Solar raised $20M in Series A funding, largest for any solar software

GCCIA and CESI Launch the GCC DAM Pilot Project

GCCIA | December 23, 2021

Gulf Cooperation Council Interconnection Authority (GCCIA) with the support of CESI Middle East FZE, a subsidiary of CESI S.p.A. (Centro Elettrotecnico Sperimentale Italiano), a world-leading technical consulting and engineering company launched the GCC Day Ahead Market (DAM) Pilot Project at the Pavilion of the Gulf Cooperation Council at Expo 2020, in Dubai. This ambitious project consists in the creation of an electronic platform for the pricing of electricity in GCC countries, as part of the first phase of the energy pricing project in the region. After the go-live, the pilot project is set to last over the course of six months, during which the Member States will be able to gather and leave feedbacks for further implementations in the future. The GCC DAM Pilot Project is the first of its kind, as it represents a fundamental cornerstone for managing the energy exchange platform launched by the Electricity Interconnection Authority in 2018, an essential contribution to the development of the spot market for electricity trading. The Electricity Interconnection Authority has dedicated a full international team, in collaboration with CESI and ENERWEB, to manage and follow this project. The GCC DAM Pilot Project aims to be a key-step for the evolution of the roadmap of the regional electricity market. This first phase aims at estimating electricity prices at a regional level and enhancing the expertise and skills on electricity trading topics. Due to the complexity of simulating day-ahead market scenarios, CESI has been involved in the creation of the new platform in terms of both quality assurance and project management support. This project is a true milestone for the electricity trading in the Gulf area, as it meets the need to implement tools that can support the shift from fossil fuels to renewable electricity sources for GCC countries. I am very proud of CESI involvement in the initiative: for years, we have been developing and using simulation tools for power markets in Europe and supporting traders and market operators, therefore, our expertise and tools can support the ambition of GCCIA, with the goal of modernizing the Gulf region’s energy market.” Matteo Codazzi, CESI Group CEO

Microsoft launches new sustainable datacenter region in Sweden next year

Microsoft | November 27, 2020

A year ago, Microsoft revealed its arrangements to extend its cloud reach in Sweden with manageability as their key target. Presently, more than one year later, the organization has affirmed that it's structure its first manageable datacentre district in Sweden in 2021 as a feature of the activities. This speculation expands on Microsoft's current presence in the nation, which includes solid associations across various areas, for example, the energy, assembling, and retail enterprises. The activity includes building up three maintainable datacentres, which Microsoft says will zero in on conveying Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365 and Power Platform across Sweden. It ought to outfit nearby organizations with cutting edge network, information protection, just as security. “Sweden has long been a leader on the global stage in many areas, including sustainability, innovation and gender equality. It is one of the places in the world where IT and tech have the greatest potential to create new opportunities for the individual, the organization and society. In this time of change, we invest in the digital infrastructure and our Swedish ecosystem to accelerate digital transformation that will empower public and private companies to innovate, providing a strong digital foundation for the country’s future growth,” said Hélène Barnekow, General Manager, Microsoft Sweden. Alongside the launch of the new datacenter region, the company also plans to partner with 13 local organizations to provide digital skills training to around 150,000 Swedish citizens. The effort is a part of Microsoft’s long term goal to help 25 million people globally to improve their technical competence. It is important to note that Microsoft Azure is already available in more than 140 countries worldwide with over 65 data center regions, making it the world’s largest cloud infrastructure.
