The solar industry is growing rapidly in terms of installed power. Production forecasting is an important element of energy balancing, especially in Europe and the U.S. where the grid is connected to multiple power sources.

Key Benefits

Accurate Short-term Forecast

Radiation and PV output down to 10-minute granularity, extending out to a week ahead with superior performance in the first few hours.

Satellite Images

New third generation geostationary satellite imagery, integrated with dynamical weather model information to detect and track clouds.

Global Coverage

Accurate forecasts for any location in the world, updated every 10-15 minutes, based on satellites, PV output data and weather models
