Reuniwatt wishes you a happy new year

A new year is a fresh start! 2024 will bring us new opportunities. The transition from MSG to MTG-I1 satellite data will allow for even better nowcasts. It enables us to optimise forecasts on your portfolios of wind and solar power plant assets, through higher data frequency and improved quality. Shout out to EUMETSAT for their consistent work to improve meteorological satellite data! This

New white paper: High Penetration Renewables for Mines

Many mines operate 24/7 with limited fluctuations in their load profiles. The economic viability of a hybrid power plant combining solar power, wind power, BESS and thermal units can be anticipated using Dornier Suntrace's in-house modelling tool AHEAD. Forecasts of energy yields of renewable generation, as provided by Reuniwatt, are an essential tool to optimise the injection of solar and wind energy into the

Sky imagers: Assessing the climate impact of condensation trails

The images provided by Reuniwatt's sky imagers are an outstanding tool for cloud-related research. Forecasting the impact of condensation trails – so-called contrails – is one goal our sky imagers help to achieve.  Different research projects aim to provide tools to monitor the climate impact of contrails and forecast contrail formation. Learn more about contrails observation using sky imagers and the R&D projects featuring

[Webinar] Meteo data quality

[Webinar] Weather data: a key element in assessing the actual performance of your solar farms Meteorological data, particularly solar irradiance, is a key element in ensuring the profitability of a solar power farm, from the development phase through to the operational phase. These data are derived both from ground measurements, collected using in-situ equipment, and from assessments based on satellite images. In both cases,

Reuniwatt in the Press: Trust the forecast

Trust-PV is a four-year, EU-funded project featuring 21 PV value chain partners who aim to improve the performance of solar projects. French business Reuniwatt has published the ‘Forecasting for advanced operational stability’ study to improve stability at the point of grid connection. Marion Lafuma, business development manager for Reuniwatt, looks at its key findings. Improving the accuracy of energy yield forecasts will help PV

New white paper: Stabilizing grid operations using solar forecasts and BESS

In South Africa, Eskom's electricity supply capacity could be best increased by promoting the diversity of energy sources in the generation. The Eskom Just Energy Transition Project will repurpose the Komati coal power station area with renewable energy and batteries, and create opportunities for local communities. Shift in the South African energy sector The Eskom Just Energy Transition Project (EJETP) will finance the decommissioning

MTG satellite system: Better nowcasts ahead

Building on the decades-long legacy of Meteosat’s first- and second-generation satellites, Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) will orbit the Earth at an altitude of 36,000 km with a stable view of Europe and Africa. It's launch offers multiple opportunities outside the space sector. MTG satellite system features and improvements EUMETSAT has provided society with more than three decades worth of satellite data, starting with the

Meteo Data Quality: Don’t overlook the basics

Weather and environmental parameters are key factors affecting PV performance. Over the years, the accuracy of the yield prediction has increased. Still, the fundamental question remains when considering development of a new solar plant: how much energy will it generate? Many parameters are subject to tough discussions between a project’s different stakeholders. One of them is future performance, and the question regarding solar resource

Meet Reuniwatt at The smarter E 2023

Meet our team at The smarter E 2023 in Munich, Germany, at booth A3.540. As a leader in cloud cover observation and forecasting, Reuniwatt offers a clear overview of the amount of solar power production available in the next minutes, hours, days, and weeks. Based on solid R&D work, Reuniwatt has been improving traditional irradiance estimation methods by the application of deep learning techniques.
