Global coverage and local accuracy

Global coverage and local accuracy

Our algorithms of day-ahead solar forecasts are available worldwide. Moreover, Reuniwatt uses regional meteorological models in order to ensure a high temporal and spatial resolution on the chosen site.

Diversification of supply sources

Diversification of supply sources

Reuniwatt’s day-ahead solar forecasts integrate cloudiness parameters coming from several observation sources, thus enabling to improve their reliability.

Improved cloud representation in weather models

Methodology

DayCast is a weather forecasting technique developed by Reuniwatt, and specifically optimised for the day-ahead and up to a whole week ahead nebulosity and solar irradiance.

DayCast combines several numerical meteorological models, permitting to improve the forecasts’ robustness. Artificial intelligence techniques train our models to take better account of local phenomena.

DayCast permits a regional cover and offers many parameters useful for the next day’s forecasts:

  • Simulation thanks to a weather model integrating regional specificities
  • External weather data integration so as to improve the model’s pertinence
  • Frequent updates of the simulations
