The display of LCOE, an improved asset purchase price solver and a longer maximum project lifetime make the use of green[::]match in version 1.23 even more effective.
When evaluating projects in the field of renewable energies various factors play an important role. Would you like the idea of having the possibility to find the LCOE (levelized cost of electricity) directly in the project overview? Thanks to the newest update of green[::]match this is possible. Now you can find - in addition to the usual indicators - the LCOE in the overview section of every project.
As a further enhancement in version 1.23 we improved the asset purchase price solver. Since green[::]match does not require an initial value anymore it is now even easier to find the asset purchase price according to your hurdle rate.
The lifetime of projects varies depending on technology and general conditions. In many cases a lifetime of 20 to 30 years is sufficient. But to have you equipped for all cases the maximum lifetime of a project was increased to 90 years. Now you can also valuate e.g. hydro projects which often have a lifetime of fifty and more years as usual with green[::]match.
In addition to the above mentioned new features we have introduced various further improvements and bug fixes. Thanks to many new tooltips you get explanatory notes while using green[::]match - without having to switch to the user manual. This makes the use of green[::]match even more intuitive and effective.
