Why Maon?

Maon enables you to do highly accurate, quick and fundamental energy market predictions.


Latest research results included in professional software to achieve a cutting-edge degree of realism. Renewables, batteries, hydropower, cogeneration, electrolyzers, electrical vehicles and exchanges can be simulated for whole Europe.


No additions necessary since high-performance computing, cloud storage, data management, market model, solver and interactive analysis integrated. Plus, proven inputs and diverse transparent interfaces available.


Flexible and digital working is more important than ever before so cloud-solutions are optimal. Maon supports non-linear and parallel work-flows for hands-on quality management and superior cross-organizational teamwork.


Maon runs on encrypted high performance clusters. All cluster nodes lie physically in Germany. In times when hacker attacks are not uncommon and cybercrime is worthwhile the cloud can offer more security.


Users only pay for storage space and model runs they really need. Expensive over-payments can be prevented. If more storage or calculation becomes necessary, it can be adjusted at any time.


Going to Maon is more efficient than building your own simulation software and IT infrastructure. Your team does not have to do software developments and tests, installations, updates, maintenances and cyber security measures.


Maon is a self-sufficient software company. We do not offer business consulting services and are not backed by venture capital or private equity. Our main source of revenue comes from international clients, making us financially independent.


Energy price forecasts from Maon have guided billion-euro investment decisions. Our forecasts are considered investment-grade and bankable by international reputable financiers.


Maon relies on the fundamentals of economics and technology. Do you want to make factual, traceable and resilient decisions? Contact us and start your leading-edge decision making.

Maon was established in 2018 as a spin-off from the Institute for High Voltage Equipment and Grids, Digitalization and Energy Economics (IAEW) at RWTH Aachen University and the Chair for Sustainable Electric Networks and Sources of Energy (SENSE) at TU Berlin. Maon works in ongoing research projects to create new knowledge in the domain of energy market simulations. Data, models and methods for the simulation of electricity wholesale markets are developed and continuously integrated into the productive simulation environment.


Maon was developed with the help of own market observations – partly published in TenneT Market Reviews and Umlaut Market Studies – as well as project experience with simulation tool-chains and latest research results. Due to decades of experience in market modelling and software development, Maon has been used in various projects and evaluation processes. Network operators evaluated for example the security of supply and investors forecasted net present values of new investment opportunities.

Best practice

Maon is regularly used by renown business consultants like Accenture, E-Bridge or e.venture. Users perform simulations for among others plant operators, industrial consumers, system operators, exchanges and investors. The long-term experience with proven market models, especially related to transmission grid usage estimation and electricity price forecasting, the in-depth energy industry expertise as well as diverse successful joint projects with leading market players make Maon valuable for fast and accurate electricity grid and market analysis.
