To help our clients understand the challenges facing our energy system, we develop, modify and apply energy modeling, including integrated energy models. We use these models to examine potential energy trends, impacts of energy policies, energy technologies and markets and the associated financial and economic impacts of energy related investment decisions.
Our people are committed to providing exceptional service to our clients. This service has often been rewarded with long-term client relationships spanning decades as well as client referrals that lead to new client relationships. Client agreements can be customized to meet a variety of needs and budgets.
Our services include the following:
Some examples of sectoral energy policies and technologies include:
We perform economic impact assessments of proposed energy and environmental regulations and policies, such as climate change policies, tax credits for renewable or carbon capture technologies or energy efficient appliances, CAFE standards and much more. These policies can have significant impacts on the mix of energy supply and demand, energy prices and environmental emissions. In order to design an effective policy or measure the potential impact of a policy on your business or stakeholders, it is important to use integrated modeling to examine their effects on energy markets and the energy system as a whole. OnLocation can provide the tools and expertise needed to answer your policy questions. Click here to read more.
We assess the role of new energy technologies, such as the impact of surging unconventional supplies of natural gas on energy markets or the potential role for small modular nuclear reactors in power production. OnLocation’s modeling and analysis can be used to assess the size of the market for a new energy technology, determine potential market impediments including competing technologies, and evaluate the ability of the technology to achieve its primary goals, such as reduced emissions or energy security. OnLocation has many years of expertise in using integrated energy models and creating customized applications that can capture the unique aspects of your technology questions.

We design informative “what-if” scenarios and alternative energy futures for use in uncertainty analyses, including alternative energy prices or resources, technology costs and macroeconomic forecasts. It is not enough to assess the potential impacts of energy policies or technologies on the energy system using only business-as-usual assumptions about energy markets and the economy. OnLocation has many years of experience using uncertainty analysis to explore a range of outcomes that may occur under a variety of alternative energy futures. Click here to read more.
We have extensive experience using integrated energy modeling to assess the costs and benefits of energy policies and technologies and provide insights into potential implementation challenges. We also design and implement innovative energy models and data tools that address new and challenging energy infrastructure and market needs. Languages used to develop these tools include AIMMS, GAMS, and PYTHON.
We deliver our services under a variety of agreements that are customized to the needs and budgets of our clients. By working closely with you, we can deliver in depth analysis of issues facing your industry in a cost-effective manner. Our services can expand the breadth and depth of your company’s expertise in areas of energy/environmental regulations and policies and their associated economic impacts.
