Power Generation Study

Get the insight you need to identify improvement opportunities in your power plant.

Whether it’s coming from competitors, consumers, or shareholders, pressure to generate better asset performance is always increasing. Solomon’s Worldwide Power Generation Performance Analysis (Power Study) compares your plant’s performance to others, regardless of technology, fuel type, or utilization, allowing you to identify your plant’s financial gaps.

The study determines where a facility is operating relative to its top-performing peers across a wide range of performance indicators. It then assigns commercial value to performance shortfalls. Our analysis enables you to effectively manage resources, improve your financial and operational performance, and enhance the competitiveness of your generating units as verified by a credible, independent third party. This process gives you the data-driven, objective support that you need for your important decisions.

The insight gained allows you to identify improvement opportunities, focus in on problem areas, determine frequency of recurring events, quantify lost revenue, adjust plant performance targets, identify resource reallocation potential and optimize operations commercially.

Solomon’s methodology gives you the high-quality, detailed data you need to achieve success, and our experienced power professionals help you through each step of the process. After study results are delivered, we can provide expert guidance to help you close gaps, improve performance, and track your KPIs on an ongoing basis.
