Development Accelerated & Enhanced
With a rapidly growing list of clean energy project opportunities, Avangrid needed a software platform to enable their development team to evaluate and analyze feasibility and preliminary system yield studies within hours, not weeks.
The Solution: View
Avangrid partnered with HST to streamline processes internally to allow developers and originators to complete high-quality feasibility studies with optimized system yields within 2 hours. A reduced feasibility study time resulted in a higher number of projects assessed, increasing the pipeline by more than 70%.
Avangrid transformed their development planning process and has realized powerful results. View has helped Avangrid grow its pipeline by 70% while maintaining high standards for design and commercial analysis. Avangrid is now in the 4th year of
using View as its early project development Operating System.
“When compared to our former processes, the View platform provides Avangrid with faster and better initial site analysis and assessment for our developers to evaluate project opportunities. View streamlines the additional site review process by allowing developers a quick way to look at multiple sites instead of having to do a lot of manual work for each new location. Overall, View’s rapid assessment capabilities help the developers expedite the early stage site analysis and develop more projects for Avangrid.”
