Power forecasts for renewable energies
enercast offers reliable and precise online power forecasts and projections for “green” power plants
For producers of renewable energy, grid operators and direct marketers, precise calculations of expected energy generation are indispensible. The higher the degree of precision, the better for all users. enercast is a web application that more than satisfies these demands. Based on specific algorithms developed by the Fraunhofer Institute IWES, enercast’s service calculates precise feed-in forecasts for the renewable energy market. The calculations are exclusively based on well-established and proven sources of data:
- Weather data from the most modern European weather services.
- Current SMA solar technology measurement data, collected from more than 36,000 photovoltaic plants.
- Satellite-based measurements of actual solar radiation, through EUMETSAT.
