NEPLAN | Investment Analysis (Present Value)

back to overview

With the module Investment Analysis, proposed investment plans can be evaluated and compared for determining the most financially viable option.

The calculation is performed with the Net Present Value as basis. The required financial input data are provided by the user e.g. discount rate, energy cost, maintenance costs etc. while the technical required data are calculated, e.g. losses, energy consumption, etc.

The outcome is a complete techno-financial evaluation and the user has a transparent image of each investment plan. This helps to find the costs-optimal solution.
