Whether you are looking to optimize existing storage operations with BatterySIMM Ops, or evaluate future storage projects with BatterySIMM Val, BatterySIMM's advanced algorithms provide the critical intelligence to add value to battery storage.

Maximize the value of storage and renewables plus storage from real-time operations to project valuation

Maximizing value means optimizing battery charge and discharge strategy across Day-Ahead and Real-Time energy and ancillary service markets inclusive of physical battery performance attributes over time.


Energy Storage Valuation



  • Determine optimal siting, sizing, and valuation
  • Optimize revenue given both physical characteristics and ISO market rules
  • Forecast Pnode prices and co-optimizes renewables + storage
  • Rapidly assess different bidding strategies.


Energy Storage Operation



  • Integrate predictive analytics with storage optimization
  • Maximize profit with strategic operations and bidding
  • Continuously optimize storage bids to ISO
  • Forecast hourly and sub-hourly price spikes and negative prices

    BatterySIMM™ Modeling Features

    BatterySIMM™ Ops and Val offer superior modeling of market price dynamics, and operational constraints, providing comprehensive resource valuation and optimal operation strategy.

    BatterySIMM's Val provides revenue streams of energy and ancillary services under multiple trading strategies. Project developers, and utilities, will benefit from the accurate market dynamics combined with physical operations of storage.
    BatterySIMM™ Val and Ops pair an in depth representation of storage with forecasting of market prices, including predictions of price spikes and trends in volatility. This allows the mixed-integer linear program to optimize dispatch between energy ancillaries for day-ahead and real-time markets.
    BatterySIMM Ops determines optimal ISO bid strategies for both day-ahead and real-time activities. Through combining probabilistic forecasting of market conditions with stochastic optimization, BatterySIMM Ops continuously maximizes market opportunities. BatterySIMM Ops connects directly to your battery EMS/BMS to receive data and manage state of charge by continuously adjusting offers for profit maximization. Ascend believes it’s unique combination of forecasting and optimization maximizes profitability beyond any other solution of man or machine.
