Main Objective

The main objective of the Action is to enhance the methodologies of forecasting wind and solar power production in the time domain of a few minutes up to several days ahead. This will be achieved by combining numerical weather models with suitable post-processing methods as well as real-time surface and remote sensing measurements. A further goal is to establish a common understanding between the relevant communities (wind and solar, meteorologists, energy engineers, grid managers) in order to optimise the technical and economic integration of these renewable energies into electricity grids and markets. Finally, this Action aims at transferring knowledge from advanced to less developed countries in this field.
