Pollutec Innovation Showcase: Reuniwatt among the finalists

Solar InCell, shorlisted during Pollutec's Innovation Showcase Reuniwatt exhibited at Pollutec 2016, the 27th international exhibition of environmental equipment technologies and services. During this fair, Reuniwatt presented its meteorological and climatic solutions for the development of solar power. Solar InCell, one of the company's newest solutions, was among the finalists of Pollutec's Innovation Showcase. Reuniwatt's booth was within the Space Village, along with public and private stakeholders such

Pollutec 2016: get your free badge and book a meeting

Come meet us at Pollutec 2016, the 27th international exhibition of environmental equipment technologies and services in Lyon, from 29th November-2nd December. Pollutec brings together professionals from around the world to discuss about innovative solutions that allows the reduction of the impact of human activities on the environment, whether it be in industry, local authorities or in the service sector. As an actor of

Reuniwatt, winner of the SME Initiatives

The French Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, Ségolène Royal, awarded Reuniwatt winner of the SME Initiatives on Thursday 28th September 2016. Reuniwatt has been awarded winner of the SME Initiatives for the energetic and ecologic transition, an Investments for the Future programme, in the "Renewable energies" category. Its winning project, entitled PRESTIGE-PV, has also been certified by the Systematic competitivity cluster. The project consists in

Eumetsat 2016: Solar forecasting presentation at the Meteorological Satellite Conference

  The 2016 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference will take place in Darmstadt, Germany from 26 to 30 September 2016. Reuniwatt will present its recent work on solar forecasting using satellite images. For its 30th anniversary, the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) organizes its annual scientific conference in its hometown Darmstadt (Germany) from 26 to 30 september 2016. A special opportunity for this

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

How the solar eclipse challenged the electricity grid in La Réunion

On September 1st, 2016, Reunion Island was on the front row to witness an extraordinary astronomical show: an annular eclipse. How did this rare event impact the photovoltaic generation, and the management of the local power grid? The Moon gradually blotted out the Sun in the morning of September 1st, successively casting its shadow from Equatorial Africa to the south of the Indian Ocean. Located

Case study: Lack of flexibility in European electrical systems leads to deteriorated grid management

How solar forecasting could avoid negative energy prices due to high renewable energy generation. The German market was affected on May 8th 2016 by an exceptional penetration of variable (solar and wind) renewable energy sources (RES) into the grid. The latter represented nearly 87% of the country’s electricity production, causing the occurrence of negative prices of about € -144.78 on the spot market throughout the

Smart City, the city of tomorrow

The world is moving towards a population more and more present in cities, with an increasing centralisation of business centres. This causes an increase in the number of inhabitants in these areas. Indeed, the United Nations announced that in 2030, two out of three people would live in cities. If nothing is done to adapt these urban areas, they will lead to inevitable economic and

Storage, a solution to the variability of renewable energy sources

The energy revolution is underway and is supported by the increasing development of renewable energy sources (RES). Indeed, in 2015, the use of green energy accounted for 134 GW of additional power capacity, more than 50% of the overall development. Solar and wind installations represented the majority of this new generation. These two energies are called variable. A phenomenon that affects RE operators and which

Intersolar Europe and EU PVSEC

Reuniwatt will attend the leading european exhibition for the solar industry and its partners: Intersolar Europe, which will take place from 22.-24. June, in Munich, Germany. We will be presenting our reasearch work at EU PVSEC, which takes place in Munich at the same time Europe's biggest solar show will take place once again in Munich, from the 22-24 June. Come meet us there in Hall
