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
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
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
[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. A volcanic
[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).
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
The Energaïa Forum, a major renewable energy event in France, will take place in Montpellier, France, on 8th and 9th december 2021. Learn about the latest trends at Energaïa Forum Energaïa Forum is a networking event focusing on renewable energies and energy saving. Reuniwatt is proud to be part of this event and will present you our complete range of solar forecasting and monitoring
As an international reference for the solar international photovoltaics (PV) community, pv magazine is well aware of the value of forecasting for PV projects of any size. In their November 2021 edition, weather forecasting was highlighted in the article "Forecast for foresight, and prosper". The cloud cover significantly influences power output, as do high winds, heavy snowfall, fire, and hail – and can lead
[Webinar] Climate Change: IR detection will make the difference! Precision in space, reliable and high-quality data on Earth: A simple concept that is helping to mitigate climate change through several aspects. In this webinar, we are proud to bring together the producer of high-quality infrared detection technology, LYNRED, with an expert in solar energy applications of the data coming from it, Reuniwatt.
