The future of energy is data.
Kevala provides data-driven insights for an evolving energy market by combining proprietary analytics with advanced grid mapping. We help new entrants target the best locations for distributed assets and provide decision support for utilities and policymakers managing a complex energy ecosystem.
We are unlocking the grid on a foundation of hard-to-get local electrical distribution data, demographic and building characteristics, environmental indicators and more. Kevala is the default decision engine for the energy+ economy in the United States.
We are a team of scientists, engineers, and energy wonks, inspired to usher in a cleaner future for the energy economy.
Recent Discussions in California’s Clean Energy Revolution In November, More Than Smart, a non-profit focused on promoting increased distributed energy resource (DER) integration, hosted its National Distributed Energy Conference in San Francisco. Among conference participants were utilities, regulators, solar developers, researchers, policymakers and others (including Kevala) who gathered to discuss the current barriers to DER[…]
After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, SB 32, an amendment to California Global Warmings Solution Act 2006, was signed by the Governor Jerry Brown on September 8th. The new law makes dramatic increases in California’s climate policy targets by requiring the state to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels[…]
By Eleanor Stribling VP, Product On Wednesday, the United States Department of Energy SunShot Initiative announced that Kevala was awarded a $1.7 million grant to build out our Grid Assessor platform. Grid Assessor helps developers reduce the risk and cost of building their projects – and optimize the forecasted value of the assets – with sophisticated[…]
New Whitepaper: Three Ways Data Will Accelerate Solar Electricity Development in the Next Five Years
Soft costs have been increasing as a percentage of total system costs for non-residential developers. At Kevala, we believe that more and better quality data will fundamentally change how developers approach new solar projects. In this excerpt from our new whitepaper, we show how our data reveals meaningful differences between nodal values in the same[…]
It used to be rare to see solar panels shining from residential rooftops, but in the last two years the sight has become much more common. As solar installations have doubled, installations are increasingly located in predominantly moderate-income neighborhoods. This demographic shift was what was intended when the California Solar Initiative (CSI), a state incentive[…]
Applying a Time Dependent Value (“TDV”) analysis uniformly across California to assess solar PV’s value fails to consider the locational value of these resources and results in underestimating their value by roughly 5%. This equates to an estimated two hundred and fifty million dollar undervaluation of solar PV if viewed through a Geography Dependent Value[…]
Post by Ethan Sprague, Kevala, Sales and BD In September, the ICCT released research that launched an EPA investigation into Volkswagen’s “clean diesel” vehicle fleet. It has been shown that VW installed “defeat devices” to enable the cars to game the emissions testing system. In doing so, the cars actually released emissions including NOx and[…]
