AI-powered solar software provider SenseHawk announced three new applications to SenseHawk Core, its cloud-based platform for solar, at Solar Power International. SenseHawk Core is a completely integrated set of applications to support everything from solar plant design and construction to operation and maintenance. The three new applications are:
- SenseHawk App for site operations and collaboration,
- SenseHawk Desk for ticketing and workflow management, and
- SenseHawk Vault for file storage, indexing and sharing.
The applications join three previously announced applications in SenseHawk Core: SenseHawk Terra for terrain data processing and analytics, SenseHawk Eye for construction monitoring and management, and SenseHawk Therm for thermography and plant health assessment.
“With SenseHawk Core, solar companies can reimagine all their processes and significantly enhance productivity,” said Swarup Mavanoor, CEO and co-founder of SenseHawk. “We are committed to making every step of the way in solar as easy and seamless as possible.”
The SenseHawk App provides a glimpse of what is possible with the platform. Designed to enhance efficiency in site operations, the iOS and Android app brings intuitive navigation, automated site status updates, one-touch ticketing, simplified task management, checklists and other information to site personnel throughout construction and operation.
SenseHawk has delivered data analytics for more than 17 GWs of solar assets across 12 countries worldwide. All six applications in SenseHawk Core are available now and offered individually or as an integrated solution.
Every data element (files, field information, performance data, analytics, reports, tickets, checklists) is indexed to a virtual model (digital twin) of the solar site and is accessible through APIs on SenseHawk Core. Using AI analytics, SenseHawk Core applications use this data and deliver actionable insights to support key processes and decisions throughout the solar lifecycle.
“We expect developers to build exciting new data analytics and prognostics applications that make use of our powerful data model,” said Rahul Sankhe, president and co-founder of SenseHawk. “Our digital twin will play a major role in integrating solar plants into tomorrow’s smart grid, but the industry can benefit from the productivity improvement today.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
