The future of energy systems is highly interdependent and exceptionally complex. Every utility, network operator and government not only needs to understand the interdependencies of different networks, but also how to leverage them to achieve the energy transition. But, modeling the interdependencies of coupled energy networks has been, to date, nearly impossible.
SAInt by encoord is a comprehensive energy network planning software that models the integration and coordination of coupled networks to optimize and accelerate the path to a fully decarbonized energy system all in one platform.
In times past, modelers would need to iterate between different modeling tools to understand the different options available. SAInt revolutionizes the process, providing planners and operators with a solution like no other. In a single platform, it can model electricity and gas networks to quantify their synergies and interdependencies, enabling increased integration of renewable energy sources and hydrogen. The result is detailed insights that give stakeholders the confidence to make better energy network investment decisions to achieve net zero.
Intuitive to use, with a modern user interface, SAInt is highly customizable and offers a flexible API to support its users in seamlessly integrating the tool with existing software and databases, streamlining the ability to interrogate the outputs from their models and use custom visualizations and animations. SAInt also integrates with wind and solar meteorological datasets to support robust modelling of renewable energy generation.
SAInt provides a cost-effective solution to transition from independently planned and operated energy networks to a fully integrated system of the future while also creating new synergies that lead to cost reductions, increased flexibility and reliability, and ultimately decarbonization.
