About

Castalune partners with growth-oriented companies to improve the speed, scale, and impact of their business.

The energy transition is rapidly making traditional ways of valuing, developing and operating infrastructure obsolete. This presents enormous opportunities for new business models, commercial structures, and investment strategies.

Our Technology

Comprehensive analytics for energy assets that are increasingly valued at an hourly granularity

Ambitious renewable portfolio standards and reliability targets, corporate 24/7 carbon-free energy criteria, and Power-to-X solutions are just a few examples of the growing focus on hourly “net zero.” However, the various analytic tools historically used to site, design, and maximize the financial performance of energy assets have not kept pace with these changes in the market, resulting in mispriced risk and unrealized returns. Castalune developed NetZero Optimizer™ to fill this gap and unlock the full potential of the energy transition. 

NetZero Optimizer™ creates a data-driven framework for decision-making at each stage of the asset lifecycle, maximizing the interactions between variables such as local and regional weather conditions, generation, load, physical infrastructure, commercial structures, wholesale commodity markets, congestion, emissions profiles, and project financing. Our partners use this framework to confidently navigate the rapidly changing markets and significantly increase value for their customers and stakeholders.
