that put you in control
Power forecasts for renewable energy
Managing weather-induced volatility is key to the successful integration of renewable energy into the power grid and energy markets. Since 2011, enercast provides accurate power generation forecasts that enable our customers around the world to efficiently operate their assets, ensure grid stability and increase their trading margins. With the ability to train forecasts for the specifics of each individual site, enercast helps build the decentralized energy system of the future.
Weather-based Artificial Intelligence
enercast has pioneered the application of artificial intelligence in renewable energy forecasting. A key element in this is the ability to efficiently process large amounts of weather data. Our systems combine numerical weather prediction models from international meteorological services with site-specific measurement data to learn the behavior of the individual plants. Based on these models, we deliver robust, plant-specific forecasts around the clock and around the world from our redundant data centers in Germany.
Our products are designed to provide you with the insights you need to take the right business decisions. With the enercast Portal, you are in full control: Flexibly configure your intraday, day-ahead or long-term forecasts and comfortably manage your asset data. Advanced charting helps you analyze the results and take the necessary action. Our software-as-a-service approach gives you easy access and uninterrupted availability.
Our Professional Services are available to assist with the integration of our products into your business process. Whether you need specific connectors, a full-service process analysis, or tailor-made forecasting solutions, don’t hesitate to talk to us about what’s possible.
Our Customer Support ensures that you get the most from your enercast products. You can choose from a range of options that include application and setup support, expert advice or access to a 24/7 emergency hotline. And in the background, they continuously monitor all operations and ensure the quality of your forecast.
Efficient asset management
Using our integration platform, forecasts can now be integrated quickly and interactively into our customers’ business processes. The result: Weather-specific process deviations and effects become more transparent, enabling an optimal management of your valuable assets.
For example, energy suppliers and grid operators can increase the investment security of their sites and systems by improving continuous feed-in into the energy grid.
Enabling energy trading
Our open integration platform enables the fusion of a wide variety of information.
For example, if historical weather data, energy consumption and production data are combined with other qualitative information, artificial neural networks can find correlations and patterns that allow a stable price forecast for the intraday, spot and control energy markets.
For instance, this allows direct marketers and energy traders to make better trading decisions.
Digital transformation of renewable energy
Digital transformation means changing processes, objects and events for the use of digital devices. A key element of this are standardized data and structures.
This is exactly where our API for interactive file mapping comes in. A uniform and consistent data quality is achieved by using an AI-based data cleansing tool.
This enables energy and industrial companies to increase productivity and reduce maintenance costs by combining and processing a wide variety of data sources to create new insights.
Optimization ofSmart Grids
Using our open forecasting platform, historical weather data and data of the current total energy consumption of a city or district as well as the local, but volatile feed-in volumes of renewable energies can be integrated, standardized and correlated.
Structurally fluctuating energy consumption loads can thus be better predicted, which, for example, can save costs for municipal utilities and local distributors and increase grid stability.
