Moata Smart Energy is a suite of solutions for the renewable energy market that help solve challenges associated with intermittent renewables, such as solar and wind. These might include energy market volatility due to demand being suppressed or curtailed, assets not performing as expected, problems with delivery and risks faced by investors, for example, improving the revenue performance of merchant projects.
The suite of solutions enables renewable developers, investors, transmission and distribution grid operators to design, construct, resource, operate and maintain assets throughout their life cycle. Offering a range of monitoring and plant oversight functions, the Moata platform architecture is scalable to multiple sites with disparate SCADA systems and physical configurations, with a customisable front end and tailored reporting.
