There’s no such thing as a cookie-cutter microgrid design. The number of inputs and design choices can be staggering. HOMER Software is the best recognized tool on the planet for microgrid design, and this free lecture will get you up and running on HOMER software. Register for the free lecture here.

Since its release, the HOMER software has been downloaded by over 100,000 people in 193 countries. This 1.5-hour free lecture shows you how to use HOMER software to simulate microgrid performance. It includes a free 30-day trial of HOMER foftware and a walk-through of several real examples.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • HOMER’s simulation-optimization-sensitivity paradigm for microgrid decision making and design
  • How to feel at home using the HOMER interface
  • A step-by-step approach to running a complete analysis in HOMER
