DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability, an energy consulting, testing and certification company, has licensed GE Energy's Multi-Area Production Simulation software solution (GE MAPS) in order to enhance its curtailment risk assessment services in the North American utility market.

"DNV KEMA has many years of experience modeling power flows and assessing renewable energy curtailment risk on the North American grid. With the additional capabilities this new software provides, we can offer our clients increased visibility into curtailment risk," says Bill Erdman, president of DNV KEMA's subsidiary BEW Engineering. "This addition is a significant enhancement of our ability to help our clients manage the financial and technical risks of their projects."

GE MAPS facilitates estimations of the risk of revenue loss due to congestion and forced curtailment over multiple years. The tool has been used widely by consultants, utilities, and system operators over the past 20 years to evaluate the operation of power systems.
