REopt Lite Software Update History

NREL has made the following updates to the REopt™ Lite web tool.

June 2018: Enhanced Resilience Features

Released on June 8, 2018, REopt Lite's enhanced resilience analysis capabilities allow building owners and energy managers to size PV and storage systems to meet a specified outage duration, and compare systems sized for optimum savings to systems sized for resilience. Users can also explore the impact of microgrid upgrade costs and avoided outage costs on project economics.

March 2018: Application Programming Interface

Released on March 23, 2018, the REopt Lite application programming interface (API) allows users and software developers to programmatically interface with the REopt Lite web tool. The API can be used to evaluate multiple sites and perform sensitivity analyses in an efficient manner, and integrate REopt Lite capabilities into other tools. Access the API.

In addition to the API release, REopt Lite developers added a downloadable dispatch strategy and additional utility rates to the web tool.
