A History of Harnessing Potential in Renewables

Since its inception, Cennergi has made consistent strides in the renewable energy sector. As we continue our progress, we remember the milestones we’ve achieved along the way.

Energised Thinking That Powers the Industry

Cennergi understands the essential role that innovation plays in the renewable energy sector. One of our own groundbreaking innovations is the Renewable energy Risk & Opportunity Domain Analysis, otherwise known as RRODA.

This proprietary algorithmic assessment tool uses above and below ground data to identify, screen and select a location that will maximise your energy yield, and your dividends, sustainably. When combined with our vast above and below ground mining datasets, our selection criteria allow us to provide the greatest savings to the largest operations.

RRODA provides an overview of your land, creating a digital terrain model that allows us to immediately calculate the levelised cost of electricity, down to a single pixel. Our five-step process takes every possible consideration into account, including environmental conditions and local wildlife.

Cennergi is forging ahead into a new era of renewable energy development for our country, our continent, and the world.”
