Totaro & Associates (T+A), an innovation strategy consultancy in the renewables sector, has signed a long-term lease for office space in Houston, Texas, to accommodate the company’s growing team. T+A is hiring additional consulting and research staff as well as a software development team to develop their next generation of data analytics tools.
T+A also announced the acquisition of a HPC (high performance computing) cluster to boost their data analytics and market intelligence platform IntelStor. This capability will let T+A analyze every existing and announced renewable energy project on Earth to extract valuable information related to product performance enhancements as well as new technology developments.
With this system, T+A believes it will be able to accurately predict the manufacturing scale and regional sales targets that a particular OEM can achieve through the introduction of new technologies and product enhancements in targeted markets across the globe.
“This new HPC cluster gives us the power to identify the product enhancements and new technologies which will result in capturing additional market share, as well as enable the exploitation of new markets with similar renewable performance characteristics,” says company CEO Philip Totaro. “This system sets us apart when it comes to assisting OEMs, sub-component suppliers, ISPs, and asset owners develop revolutionary new technologies that will drive product and services revenue.”
This predictive analytics capability for newly product development will be debuted at the upcoming AWEA WINDPOWER 2016 event in New Orleans, Louisiana, in May.
