Used to plan and design electricity infrastructure by our customers as they expand, operate and maintain their system

Engineering services serve as a pipeline for software customer growth

what we do Waya Energy

Efforts to incorporate renewable generation and storage into electricity systems globally, and to expand access to electricity in the developing world with new technologies have created a need for new system design and analysis tools.

Geospatial Planning Tool

WAYA ENERGY’s software tool is a disruptive geospatial electrification data-intensive model. 

With national or regional data, the model generates the least-cost electrification plan to the maximum level of granularity: household level. It’s a techno-economic optimization considering three forms of electrification: grid extension, mini-grids and isolated systems.

Off-Grid Design

WAYA ENERGY’s GIS based software tool allows for detailed technical design of an off-grid site including generation and network layout. 

The ease of use of the software allows for a scalable effort to design tens of thousands of off-grid sites quickly, which can be used to guide a large scale mini-grid program. 

The software has been used to design off-grid systems in India, Uganda, Kenya, Peru, Amazonia, Nigeria, Cambodia and Indonesia.

Regulation, business models & policy

Our consulting services portfolio proceeds from the Integrated Distribution Framework developed by the Universal Energy Access Lab of MIT and IIT-Comillas.

A sustainable conceptual comprehensive approach and applied in actual projects in Rwanda, Nigeria, Uganda and India, and then details which conditions would be required to directly involve and empower large utilities in accelerating the pace towards Universal Electrification through the least-cost combination of supply technologies (grid extension, microgrids and solar kits) and business models.

Business Summary

Electricity systems are growing and transforming across the globe as renewable energy use expands, and developing countries strive for universal access. Trillions of dollars will be invested in system upgrades and expansion in the coming decades.

Waya Energy provides powerful planning & analysis software, and engineering services to utilities, developers and investors that help them precisely target and optimize their investment decisions – saving money and time. Ultimately this can greatly accelerate achieving affordable and sustainable power for all.

Our unique planning software: REM, will enable us to generate revenues immediately, and at the same time to advance our vision of a comprehensive engineering software platform that empowers our customers and helps them create recurring value as they expand, maintain, operate and regulate their electricity systems.

Our competitive advantage stems from the expertise and experience of our founding team, and access to an extensive and growing library of proprietary modelling and analysis tools.

«Minigrid strategies should play a more important role in electrification planning, both transitorily and on a permanent basis, particularly when the central grid suffers from frequent and prolonged blackouts.»
