FEATURES DESIGNED FOR ANALYSTS AND INVESTORS
The Fractal Model co-optimizes the technical design and financial analysis of storage and hybrid projects.
TRANSPARENT AND AUDITABLE
No black box. The Fractal Model leverages Microsoft Excel and provides users with unlocked and auditable calculations and algorithms. Users can customize formulas and add their own cash flow (or use Fractal’s cash flow model).

FAST AND POWERFUL
The Fractal Model has inputs ranging from seasonal (12 months x 24 hours) to hourly (8760 hours x 40 years). The Fractal Model Add-in is 20 times faster than VBA and automatically optimizes the dispatch using hourly prices and 15 min prices.
The Fractal Model is the only tool that models CAPEX, OPEX and degradation according to real market data. Fractal aggregates project costs from procurements across different sizes, technologies and CODs. Pricing curves are updated quarterly.
DESIGN / DISPATCH FLEXIBILITY
The Fractal Model provides design and analysis for standalone BESS or hybrid resources (PV+S (AC or DC coupled), wind+storage, gas+storage). Projects can be FTM or BTM. Dispatch can be merchant, full off-take or quasi merchant.
UNMATCHED PHYSICS ENGINE
The Fractal Model accurately simulates:
- Efficiencies (user configurable curves)
- Degradation (6 different chemistries + user defined chemistry)
- Throughput (track MWh)
- State of Charge (timestamp by timestamp tracking of battery energy)
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Fractal Model subscribers can access energy storage experts for quick questions or full analysis. Training is provided with every Fractal Model subscription.
Fractal Model can pull performance data from Fractal EMS and create a digital twin. Use the digital twin to further optimize the balance between costs and revenues.
Perform sensitivity analysis by changing annual escalators for capacity payments, arbitrage revenue, ancillary revenue, warranty costs, aux load costs, corrective maintenance, etc.
NEW FRACTAL PORTAL
The Fractal Portal gives users access to a library of latest Fractal Model files and all previous releases. The Fractal Knowledge Center is home to release notes, tutorial videos, monthly newsletters and FAQ, all in one convenient location.
NEW FRACTAL MAPS
Fractal Maps allows users to evaluate your project locations. View key transmission and distribution infrastructure maps. Users will be able to download historical prices and see project ROR in the next release.
