COMET: The mini-grid simulator for developers and communities—building better energy systems together.
Inform and engage communities.
Simplify communication of energy and billing concepts. Improve the accuracy of your demand and willingness-to-pay estimates.
Encourage and support productive use.
Familiarize local businesses with energy costs and time of use incentives. Coordinate and plan productive uses that match availability of power and improve local livelihoods.
Manage demand, drive down costs.
