Off-Grid Solar: Practical advice for the implementation of weather forecasts with sky cameras

In off-grid installations, solar energy can substitute up to 30 to 40% of annual fuel consumption. To achieve such penetration rates, the photovoltaic power plant is then combined with storage and forecasting systems using all-sky imagers, which play a key role in the energy management of the hybrid power plant. In remote rural areas, communities or industrial sites often do not have access to

[Webinar Series] Deep Learning approaches for weather-dependent businesses

[Webinar] Deep-learning approaches for weather-dependent businesses Our last webinar of 2020 will look into deep learning approaches for weather dependent businesses. After this webinar you'll have an understanding of: Why deep learning can enhance weather forecasts for solar energy in comparison to the use of physical models and image processing technology How deep learning works A use

Reuniwatt multiplies Contracts for Solar Forecasting

The company from Reunion Island has developed innovative techniques for forecasting solar irradiance for photovoltaic power plants, which have earned it contracts all over the world. A few weeks ago, Reuniwatt signed a contract with Enel Green Power, the world's third largest producer of photovoltaic electricity. Reuniwatt's 20 employees had already convinced Terna, the Italian electricity distributor, and the Brazilian municipality of Oiapoque, in

[Webinar Series] PV system performance: Expectation versus reality

Reuniwatt's successful webinar series continues. Our next key topic: How to evaluate the performance of your solar power plants correctly. Focus on KPIs for your solar system portfolio Digital solutions are nowadays a standard for measuring and evaluating the performance of PV systems according to the state-of-the art. But what are the top KPIs for asset management reporting? And how can automated reporting be

How to take full benefit of the solar resource within hybrid systems

For the energy intensive mining industry, the integration of renewable energy in their operations is an opportunity to realise fuel savings and environmental benefits. In their new white paper Cost Saving Potential of Solar Hybrid Systems for Microgrids - How to take full benefit of the solar resource within hybrid systems, Reuniwatt and Suntrace share their expertise on how to improve the energy management of

Reuniwatt, on board the winning H2020 TRUST-PV project

A new EU project, TRUST-PV will support the development of O&M-friendly and grid-friendly solar PV components and solutions in large portfolios of distributed and utility scale PV. The TRUST-PV innovations will be tested and demonstrated from fab to field, with all data gathered along the value chain flowing into a decision support system platform that uses AI and is based on and beyond Industry

[Webinar Series] Feedback from the 1.65 GWp Benban Solar Complex in Egypt

The design, implementation and operation of mega projects like the 1.65 GWp Benban solar park in Egypt has its own challenges. What are the solutions to problems such as extreme weather conditions or voltage drops at the end of the line, and how can stable management be ensured for the years to come? Designing and implementing a mega project During this webinar, Voltalia will

Reuniwatt’s microgrid expertise awarded at EU PVSEC 2020 online

Reuniwatt's latest research on the value of production forecasts for solar-diesel hybrid systems, presented at EU PSEC 2020 last week, was acknowledged with a Poster Award. The innovative nature of forecasts for microgrid solar systems The EU PVSEC Poster Awards aim to further encourage and reward high quality contributions that combine innovation and scientific excellence. The EU PVSEC conference, held annually since 1977, is

Microgrids: Solar Forecasting System for Fekola Mine’s Solar-Battery-Hybrid Project

One of the world's largest off-grid solar-storage hybrid projects is under construction, at the Fekola Mine in Mali. A complete solar forecasting system implemented by Reuniwatt will allow to efficiently plan the generator dispatching and to mitigate the risk of solar production variability for the US$ 38million microgrid project. Improving fuel savings with short-term solar forecasts for microgrids Hybrid energy systems combining solar and
