    Increase renewable energy production, reduce maintenance costs, and maximize operational efficiency

    Hidden underperformance, lack of visibility into production loss and its causes, and premature and unexpected component failures are just some of the challenges faced by renewable energy operators today. Weighed down by extremely large data volumes and diverse asset mixes, asset management often becomes a time-consuming (and expensive) endeavor, requiring multiple tools that together fail to deliver a strong return on investment.

    SparkCognition Renewable Suite was built by renewable energy experts to provide a single AI-powered tool for the management of multiple asset types—solar, wind, hydro, and energy storage—with proven ability to increase annual energy production up to 5% and decrease O&M costs by 10%.

    Get end-to-end visibility with dashboards, monitoring, and automated reporting

    SparkCognition Renewable Suite gives you the entire picture to view actionable alerts for fleet-level KPIs and operations. Renewable Suite’s automated performance metrics allow for streamlined maintenance decisions.
    • View energy production, capacity factor, revenue, and energy-based availability.
    • Monitor assets or components at risk of failure and examine maintenance cost trends.
    • Measure downtime and lost energy events by frequency and duration.
    • Observe current site environmental conditions (wind speed, direction, temperature, solar irradiation, and more).

    Drill down using powerful alarm and event management features

    Drill down to explore your project and device-level KPIs. SparkCognition Renewable Suite improves operational outcomes by enabling analysts and technicians to spend less time managing data and more time developing solutions.
    • Set up custom alerts from project to asset level.
    • Review faults and downtime by frequency, duration, and lost energy.
    • Discover components with early-stage and advanced failure risks.
    • Create configurable dashboards to track environmental conditions and asset-specific data.

    Forecast energy production, demand, and pricing

    SparkCognition Renewable Suite provides AI-enabled predictions to forecast power production, demand, and pricing to help you meet regulatory requirements.
    • Track multiple types of availability agreements with energy- and time-based forecasting.
    • ​​Forecast real-time grid operations, turbine control, load dispatch planning, energy trading demand, and pricing.
    • Proactively make online and offline generating decisions, set reserve requirements, and plan O&M decisions around remaining useful life.
    • Gain visibility into future spare parts needs and plan crane callouts earlier to avoid unnecessary costs.

    Prevent failures and reduce O&M costs with predictive maintenance

    SparkCognition Renewable Suite’s advanced anomaly detection and predictive analytics ensure timely maintenance action, minimizing component damage and reducing failure rates and downtime. Early problem detection enables maintenance staff to proactively plan, prepare, and avoid unexpected costs.
    • Increase energy production via automated detection of underperforming assets
    • Combine SparkCognition expertise, physics-informed models, and advanced AI to prevent failures and reduce cost.
    • Extract maximum ROI from learnings captured by predictive analytics combined with prescriptive actions.
    • Combine data from multiple assets with scalable and automated model building.

    Turn data into valuable insights with self-service analytics

    SparkCognition Renewable Suite makes any data in the platform available to create custom analytics reports. Analyze datasets including production, revenue, availability, fault data, maintenance costs and time, parts usage, and anomaly detection.  Advanced natural language processing technology allows you to retrieve data from unstructured sources to improve analytics and prescriptive insights.
    • Generate time domain, scatter, fault, and downtime visualization plots.
    • ​​Create heatmaps
    • Plot and compare multiple assets or components to identify anomalies quickly.
    • Use both preconfigured and user-defined analysis.
