At RLI, we have developed various software tools that we use internally and can make available to third parties.
SMOOTHSimulation of sustainable energy and mobility systems
How does a smart grid behave during the course of the year? How much CO2 can be saved?
MOEAOptimization of energy systems
How can components be optimally assembled and operated to reduce costs and emissions? What is a suitable compromise between various optimization goals, such as minimum CO2 emissions and costs?
Evaluations of decision alternatives using qualified weightings (Analytical Hierarchy Process)
Which regions are at the forefront of e-mobility? Which locations are suitable for charging infrastructure?
GISAnalyses with geographic information systems
Where can a system be used sensibly? How should energy infrastructure be distributed? Which users can be reached? Assessment of renewable resources, application of database systems, modelling of on- and off-grid electrification
MCSTransferability and robustness analysis
How does an energy system react to changing site conditions? How does a change in the consumption structure affect economic efficiency?
Tools for rural electrification planningSurveys to determine the energy demand, calculation of load curves
