Short term power forecasting

Short term power forecasting

As solar-generated electricity increasingly impacts on many countries’ grids, its fluctuating nature makes a uniform approach to managing energy from all sources crucial. Accurate short-term forecasting of solar power can help to achieve this goal.

Independent system operators who have to manage supply and demand on a grid system can avoid many of the balancing issues, if accurate forecasts of solar output are available. Anybody trading in solar energy can negotiate a better price, if they have precise information about the volume they have to sell at any particular time.

DNV GL operates services for a range of clients, in countries all around the world. Utilities, energy traders, solar site operators and ISOs rely on this highly accurate and reliable forecasting service, with its operational availability of 99.9%.

The forecasting service combines DNV GL’s solar energy expertise and experience with the best weather model inputs, to provide state-of-the-art forecasts of site output. The service is operated from a secure server, in close proximity to the Internet backbone, to which data are sent and from which the power forecasts are issued in client-specific formats.
