Value added to customers increases by up to 25 %

With its software-as-a-service products, enercast increases the production value of its customers in the energy and industrial sectors by up to 25 %. The company combines predictive analytics with artificial intelligence based on big data to deliver improved forecasts.  It currently links more than 1,000 TB of external data with process data and adds about 150 GB of new data per day.  Every 15 minutes, its products generate around 100,000 control signals, which increase the value added to customers.  The self-learning algorithms continually analyze historical and current weather and performance data from various sources, achieving an accuracy of 97.5 % in its day-ahead forecasts for customers in the renewable energy market.  Precise forecasts of the amount of power generated from wind and solar are a key prerequisite for the load control of the power grids and smart grids of the future.
