Benchmarking Power Plants & Utilities

Deep expertise, proven methodologies and decades of experience benchmarking and providing valuable insight to clients.

In the power generation industry, it is challenging to find enough resources to address all your needs. To survive, you must be able to adapt. That means being willing to change and ask yourself tough questions, such as “How can I optimize production of my current assets?”.

Solomon’s experienced professionals understand that to answer such questions and make solid, fact-based business decisions, you need accurate, detailed, high-quality data based on a long-term perspective. When you're trying to maximize your plant’s performance and optimize costs, you need data you can trust — public, high-level, or single-year data will just not do.

Complementing Solomon’s access to real-world operating data is our extensive industry experience. At Solomon, each of our consultants has more than 25 years of experience managing and directing the day-to-day operations of power generation facilities, with expertise covering every type of facility and is now applied to desalination plants as well due to their high level of energy consumption. Our consultants can help you interpret real-world data and apply it to the circumstances of your individual plant. They can also help you dig into that data, allowing you to identify opportunities to guide your planning.
