Solar production forecast

Forecast your solar performance

Why solar power production forecasts are essential? 

The impact of a cloud over a solar power plant can be very significant, with production dropping by 80% in a matter of minutes. These rapid variations force managers to act by implementing means for maintaining the stability of electrical systems and the security of supply. The variability of solar production is therefore a phenomenon that the entire value chain must guard against to reduce the financial overhead associated with weather variability.

Variability in solar production should therefore be guarded against throughout the entire value chain to reduce the financial overhead associated with weather variability, maximize the penetration rate of solar energy in the network, the profitability of power plants, or anticipate the volatility of prices on the electricity markets.
