EMS 2016: Forecasting the solar generation in insular areas

At the occasion of its 16th Annual Assembly, which will take place in Trieste (Italy) from September 12.-16. 2016, the European Meteorological Society (EMS) focuses on coastal meteorology. Given the fact that nearly 40% of the European population lives within 50 km from coasts, the quality of weather forecasts is crucial since it largely impacts the safety and the economic activity of insular and littoral areas.
As a solar generation forecasting […]

Reuniwatt, member of the International Energy Agency’s Task 46

In order to get the best out of solar energy, a good knowledge of the resource is essential. An accurate assessment of the solar resource is important for dimensioning solar plants – whether they are thermal, photovoltaic or concentration –. Reliable and trustworthy production forecasts during a plant’s operating phase are just as important. TSOs need them to properly handle the variable availability of the […]
