Federal Aviation Administration Microgrid Projects
We have developed a cyber-secure microgrid web platform capable of enabling project management and secure collaboration amongst federal and civilian contractors on a national scale. Real-time workflow automation, project status monitoring, project bid and award management, electrical and mechanical engineering design/review, construction plan review, and operational testing and commissioning automation has been implemented. It also integrates and delivers an On the Job Training system with certification testing in order to quickly train new hires at scale to support over $3 Billion in ACEPS II microgrid projects for the National Airspace System critical infrastructure.

Microgrid and DER Optimization Platform for WorleyParsons' Advisian
WorleyParsons, Advisian, and BankableEnergy | XENDEE are providing worldwide service on Distributed Energy Resource and Microgrid projects by further developing the Xendee software. Utilizing global databases of energy pricing, solar, wind data, vendor data, geospatial information, and algorithms for system configuration and power flow analysis, the XENDEE platform provides the ability to model distributed energy resources and microgrids, at any scale, producing a technical and financial optimization report. Advisian’s experts conduct feasibility studies, analysis, design, and optimization using the XENDEE platform, backed by the full capability of the WorleyParsons Group for detailed engineering, procurement, and construction of complete projects.
Validated, Transparent, and Accessible Microgrid Valuation and Optimization Tool
A novel streamlined approach to microgrid screening and siting to maximize locational Distributed Energy Resource (DER) and microgrid values will be developed. The approach is based on locational constraints and will include feeder hosting capacity, local grid reliability, energy usage intensity, critical facilities, high penetration of renewables, and disadvantaged communities. This project will merge Xendee’s optimization capabilities, visualization interfaces, power flow capabilities with EPRI’s design experience. Major partners are the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).

Airport Microgrid Toolkit for the Rocky Mountain Institute
The objective of this project is to produce a microgrid evaluation toolkit for airport decision makers and stakeholders, which addresses site-specific criteria for airports of all types and sizes. The toolkit should be a suite of reference materials and allow mitigating risks and addressing negative effects of power outages at airports, so that they can act self-sufficiently in the generation and management of their own power and assets. The project team consist of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), BankableEnergy | XENDEE, Converge Strategies, Barrett Energy Resources Group, and James M. Crites LLC.
Microgrid Support to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
The BankableEnergy team will support Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on microgrid design projects by utilizing its Xendee optimization and power flow platform, and thus, directly enhances microgrid deployment in California. Economic investment decisions for critical infrastructure to maximize the service during outages will be analyzed and supplemented by transient analyses.
U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria (USAG Bavaria) at Garmisch Project
The U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria (USAG Bavaria) at Garmisch, Germany uses XENDEE for its Microgrid and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) projects. The BankableEnergy|XENDEE team, together with USAG personnel will provide the conceptual, technical, and electrical design for the Garmisch U.S. Army installation.
Software Programming and Maintenance Support Services
This project supports the Grid Integration Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with software services to integrate the latest DER-CAM features into the research based graphical user interface of DER-CAM. We provide software development and maintenance support services. New Geographical Information System (GIS) capabilities are programmed by our software experts.
TOTAL Microgrid Project Oceania
Bankable Energy is helping TOTAL with a large remote microgrid project in Oceania by applying the XENDEE Platform. Power flow analyses and economic optimizations have been performed to identify the most suitable Distributed Energy Resources (e.g. PV, CHP, or storage). Thus numerous sensitivity analyses have been performed to identify the most economic and/or environmental friendly solutions that satisfy grid stability constraints. The best locations for Distributed Energy Resources to mitigate grid problems have been suggested.
