HOMER Micropower Optimization Model

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    NREL has developed the HOMER micropower optimization model. The model can analyze all of the available small power technologies individually and in hybrid configurations to identify least-cost solutions to energy requirements. This capability is valuable to a diverse set of energy professionals and applications. NREL has actively supported its growing user base and developed training programsaround the model. These activities are helping to grow the global market for solar technologies.
