Clixoo – Outsourced IT Solution Development for Solar

Solar power is the fastest growing sector within renewable energy and cleantech.

By 2050, solar power is anticipated to become one of the world’s largest source of electricity. With such a furious growth, many stakeholders are interested in making their prospective clients understand the benefits of investing in solar. Web applications for Solar feasibility analysis, calculators, estimators and other software tools, Interactive guides and content for carbon footprint reduction estimates from solar, etc. are some of the most wanted solutions by many stakeholders in the industry.

Clixoo can provide outsourced software solution assistance for the entire solar value chain and have a special focus on:

  • Solar power generation and cost estimates

  • Evaluation of solar components

The Solar Mango team – a division of Clixoo – has worked on a variety of strategic assignments right from the beginning of the solar power phenomenon in India and have worked with diverse stakeholders – government, small businesses, global leaders, international firms entering India and academia.

Characterizing the available solar resource and local meteorological attributes is an important first step to begin any solar energy project.  While residential and small commercial solar projects may require only a primary assessment of the potential solar resource, larger utility scale projects necessitate a much more thorough evaluation. This is where the need for solar resource assessment tools come in

The Clixoo team can provide outsourced software development assistance for such software that can cover areas like:

  • Extensive meteorological data from various weather stations
  • Integration of on-site measurements
  • Evaluation of energy yield based on site-specific data
  • Risk analysis based on PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) rates and expected power generation
  • Uncertainty and probability exceedance values for multiple scenarios
  • Equipment orientation and positioning based on shadow analysis and soil conditions

Solar power plant is a 25 year investment and it is important to select the right components for getting maximum ROI and savings from the plant. This is why Clixoo has developed a proprietary evaluation tool called PV Savvy.

We can develop customized evaluation tool for all the major solar components, given our domain expertise in solar for over a decade:

  • Solar Panels
  • Inverters
  • Mounting Structures
  • Cables
  • Trackers
  • Monitoring Systems

Component evaluation software could be of great use to any stakeholder who is new to the solar sector – Solar EPCs, System Integrators, Developers and Investors. A user-friendly interface with easy navigation and simple language understandable even for common man will be some of the highlights of our solar components evaluation software.

 Solar monitoring solutions are key to track the performance of one or many of the solar power plants. Immediate fault detection, preventive maintenance and module-level monitoring are highly recommended features of a robust monitoring system. For developers with solar projects at many locations of the country and for large Solar EPCs managing several rooftop and utility-scale solar power projects – centralized solar monitoring is the key for hassle-free O&M and immediate fault detection.

The Clixoo team can provide outsourced software development assistance for such software that can cover areas like:

  • Exception reporting to operators  based on SCADA data
  • Streamline O&M workflows
  • Predictive maintenance plans for operators
  • Corrective maintenance schedules based on faults
  • Power plant fault diagnostics and analysis
  • Data studios that compare predicted and actual output yield
  • Analysis of lost production and reporting
  • Portfolio management that enables performance tracking of several solar plants
  • Alarm and intervention management

Solar project management software is necessary for developers, investors and large EPCs who are executing large-scale solar power plants at various locations in a country. An effective Project management can save a lot of money as a result of timely procurement of solar components and effective management of human resources.

The Clixoo team can provide outsourced software development assistance for such tools that can cover areas like:

  • Real-time dashboard showcasing project health status with KPIs
  • Task progress tracking
  • Over-due alerts, notifications and reminders to taskforce
  • Customer relationship management
  • Document management and strorage
  • Job schedule overview
  • Lead density maps
  • Reporting

Financial calculators and tools will be helpful for solar investors and developers to understand financial returns, IRRs, Payback periods, O&M cost estimates and other financial risks and forecasting.

Such comprehensive tools aid in the evaluation and presentation of the economic case for PV systems, and ease the sales or implementation process.

The Clixoo team can provide outsourced software development assistance for such tools that can cover areas like:

 

  • Total Lifecycle Payback
  • Equity and Project Payback
  • Internal Rate of Return (IRR) / Compound Annual Rate of Return (CARR)
  • DSCR
  • Resale Value Increase
  • Cash Flow
  • Monetary savings over other energy options
  • Government incentives and tax credits

 

Clixoo can also develop customized calculators for the following sectors:

 

  • Residential rooftop solar power plants
  • Commercial and industrial rooftop solar power plants
  • Small – medium ground-mounted solar power plants
  • Large solar farms

Some of our calculators are showcased below:
