Why?

Excel your decisions by using exceptional accurate, quick and substantiated predictions.

Forecast realistically

Latest research results included to achieve an extraordinary degree of realism. Batteries, electrical vehicles, electrolyzers, hydropower facilities, interconnectors, renewables, thermal plants, and others can be simulated together for whole Europe.

Deliver today

All features can be used immediately with just a web browser and an internet connection. To maximize productivity, the solution integrates seamlessly all modules. Within a day, you can parameterize, create, and deliver full results.

Cooperate and win

Flexible and digital working is more important than ever before so cloud-solutions are optimal. Maon supports non-linear and parallel usage, enabling to do tasks in any order and distributed among multiple teams.

Secure confidential data

The software runs only on encrypted and by multiple layers protected clusters. All cluster nodes are located in Germany. In times when hacker attacks are not uncommon and cybercrime is worthwhile, the cloud can offer more security.

Limit costs

Users only pay for storage space and model runs they really need. Expensive over-payments can be prevented. If more space or runs become necessary, it can be adjusted at any time. Or, we use the product and provide you the wished data.

Focus on strengths

Using Maon is more efficient than building another solution. You do not have to develop and maintain a software and IT infrastructure nor validate complex interplaying models. Instead, your team can focus on its core competency.

Choose an independent provider

Maon is a profitable and independent software company. We are not backed by venture capital or private equity. Our simluation works unbiased and is free of conflict of interests. The main source of revenue comes from international clients.

Background

Maon is the name of both, company and product. It is pronounced as "maa-on". The word was derived from "Market simulation", pointing out that simulations are the key in predicting markets.

Research

Maon, established in 2019 as a spin-off from RWTH Aachen and TU Berlin, brings theoretical research results for energy market simulations into practical applications. For this transformation, we engage in research projects to generate new knowledge, combine the best approaches, and bring new innovations to live.

Focusing on electricity wholesale markets, we are dedicated to the continuous enhancement of simulation accuracy and speed through the development of advanced data, models, and methods. These breakthroughs are integrated into our simulation environment, stacking innovations and creating unseen forecasting possibilities. We are determined to build the world's leading energy market simulation.

Embark on a journey into the future of energy with Maon, where recent research gains transform into unparalleled software solutions, extending the forefront of energy market foresights.

Software

The innovative software stems from decades-long and hands-on experience in the development of high-performing numerical-analysis software. In combination with the research approach and simulation data know-how, Maon has evolved into a 24/7 powerhorse of foresight.

We developed an integrated and collaborative simulation environment that has played a pivotal role in hundreds of projects and thousands of evaluations. Network operators, for instance, utilized Maon to assess the security of supply. Investors harnessed Maon's capabilities to forecast net present values of new gigafactories, storages, and power plants. All these foresights were calculated exceptionally fast, in just a couple of hours or minutes.

The multifaceted applications of Maon underscore its versatility, reliability, and practicality in delivering crucial insights for market participants with front-running speed.

Excellence

Maon is the preferred choice of renown business consultants such as Accenture, BBHC, and e.venture. Users across diverse energy sectors, including plant operators, industrial consumers, system operators, exchanges, and investors, routinely employ Maon for market simulations.

What sets Maon apart is its meticulously substantiated and integrated models, particularly for investment, dispatch, and price forecasting. Maon has proven itself through a series of successful applications by prominent market players to generate multi-layered and robust insights. This track record reveals that Maon is an invaluable tool to make high-stake decisions in the electricity market.

Its reputation for delivering quantitative results, coupled with its collaborative success with industry leaders, makes Maon an indispensable calculator for professionals seeking excellence in their analyses and decision-making.
