Coronal Energy, powered by Panasonic, provides turnkey solar energy solutions tailored for diverse enterprise customers across North America, including utilities, corporations, and the public sector. The IPP owns and manages a 353MW operating project portfolio.
By aggregating all project data onto one platform, QOS Energy brings the twin benefits of improving the productivity, quality and the consistency of the asset management process.
"Before consolidating our O&M management with QOS Energy, we used to rely on as many as five different monitoring platforms," explained Vania Mesrob, VP Asset Management of Coronal Energy. "Unsurprisingly, our asset management team is very happy with this move".
Coronal Energy's asset management team worked with QOS Energy to tailor the platform to its specific needs and centralize data coming from multiple former DAS/SCADA systems in real-time. Thanks to QOS Energy's hardware agnostic approach, they were able to onboard the 350MW+ portfolio in less than 2 months. The end solution enables Coronal Energy to increase energy production and achieve a higher ROI.
"We are excited to work for Coronal Energy. They are an ideal customer for us. Since they manage a renewable energy portfolio composed of diverse equipment, they can really extract the maximum value out of Qantum®, and ensure data quality and integrity," said Hugo Lapie, Director of Sales North America of QOS Energy.
