WRF-Solar EPS: A new probabilistic solar power forecasting tool

Among the many existing numerical weather prediction (NWP) models, the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model is the most widely used open-source predictive model for weather forecasting worldwide. The recently developed WRF-Solar Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) allows us to provide high quality probabilistic solar irradiance forecasts. What is WRF-Solar? As more and more photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed around the Globe, intraday and

Observing contrails: identification & dynamics prediction

Condensation trails – so-called contrails – are artificial clouds composed of water, soot, and cool air behind jet aircraft in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. These non-CO₂ emissions are responsible for a large share of aviation’s impact on climate change. A French-German research project is now aiming to observe and forecast their impact. Contrails have been an object of research in the past

Meet Reuniwatt at The smarter E 2022!

Reuniwatt has once again been selected as a finalist for The smarter E AWARD 2022! We’ve been nominated in the category “Outstanding Projects” for our contribution to B2Gold's Fekola Mine hybrid power plant in Mali, together with our project partner Suntrace GmbH. Reuniwatt and Suntrace have already presented a joint webinar about the hybridization of off-grid mines using solar power and solar forecasting, "Off-grid Solar:

Project CO-OP: A first winner of the Space section of France Relance

Reuniwatt is already the winner of a 1st prize of the Space Tour 2021 launched by the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and the Recovery. We are proud to be on board a second winning project! Free-space optical communications still face several technical challenges before their full potential can be reached. The technology of free-space optical communications is based on the transport of data

[Webinar Series] Volcanic eruptions and aerosols

[Webinar Series] Volcanic eruptions and aerosols - what did we learn from the Hunga-Tonga? On January 15, 2022, the undersea volcano at Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai erupted. At the time, signals evaluated by ECMWF showed that material from the eruption rose higher than 20 km. According to recent research, it rose in fact to 58 km, and the event gained worldwide attention.[1] A volcanic

[Webinar Series] Project ICamCloudOps 2022 Update

[Webinar Series] AI in Meteorology: Intelligent camera cloud operators for numerical weather prediction The project ICamCloudOps, funded by BMVI/mFUND, invites you to a webinar presenting the intermediate results of the project to the public. ICamCloudOps is a cooperation between DWD, the german weather service, and Reuniwatt, funded by mFUND, the "modernity fund" of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

A Happy New Year 2022!

As a pioneer in solar forecasting, it was our goal to develop the best skills in cloud observation. Today we are proud to be a market leader in the field of cloud forecasting, energy meteorology and high-class all-sky cameras. Every conversation is a learning lesson, therefore we thank you for your feedback and wish all our readers, customers, supporters and friends a Happy New
