Solar Energy Forecasting Used to Manage a Solar PV Plant with Storage in an Insular Grid

June 7th, 2017

In the Martinique Island (French oversea territory in the Caribbean), the grid stability can be seriously affected by the variability of the solar PV production. The larger-scale integration of this energy, will go with the addition of storage capacities and an adapted management system which integrates forecasts of the solar production over several time scale.

Trading of the Solar PV Production in France – How to Improve Risk Management?

April 24th, 2017

In France, the solar energy trading is becoming a reality. The energy can be negotiated for a delivery the next day (day ahead market) or for a delivery the same day (intraday market) up to 30 minutes before the actual delivery begins. How to reduce the deviation between the forecast and the actual production as well as the associated costs to the minimum ?
