Advanced weather forecasting is a powerful tool for the integration of variable renewable energy (VRE), such as solar PV and wind power, into power systems. Accurate forecasting allows for more precise estimates of the amounts of VRE likely to be available in specific time frames, both short- and long-term. This, in turn, improves system stability and system planning, guiding long-term VRE geographical plant placement, among others. There are two main pieces to the advanced weather forecasting puzzle, hardware and software. While meteorological devices capture real-time, site-specific weather data, artificial intelligence (AI) can produce advanced forecasts for solar irradiation and wind speed output based on this data.
