At Tyba, we believe modeling is critical for decision making throughout the lifecycle of a renewable energy project.

  • Developers need to understand where to build, how much their energy could be worth over decades of production, and the optimal power plant design to capture the best return on investment
  • Operators need to predict highly volatile prices across multiple markets, and manage risk appropriately.
  • Investors need to allocate capital across a wide range of risk products from development capital to long-term project debt.

We strive to provide the models best suited for answering these questions, deliver them in an accessible and transparent way, and enable our users to build their proprietary capabilities on top of our core infrastructure.
