Case Studies | Analytica in Green Analytics

Paper or plastic? Solar or wind?  These are often surprisingly hard questions. Analytica is an ideal tool for clarifying and quantifying environmental as well as economic costs and benefits.  Power companies are using Analytica to select the best mix of technologies to meet renewable portfolio standards, and other economic and regulatory needs. Energy equipment companies use it to analyze global demand and help their customers evaluate the return on investment on their products. The US Department of Energy uses Analytica to evaluate its R&D in energy efficiency and renewables. See selected case studies below.
