NY Power Authority, National Lab Scale Up Solar Forecasting Research

The New York Power Authority (NYPA) last week said that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office has allocated $500,000 in matching funds to step up joint research into solar power forecasting. The funds will be used to develop prediction models that anticipate output from both large solar facilities and rooftop solar resources and pass the information on to operators. “We need to fully understand solar output, whether rooftop or utility scale , and what the impact is of changing weather conditions, if we want to fully integrate photovoltaic power generation into system operations,” Alan Ettlinger, director of research, technology development and innovation at NYPA, said in a statement. “This project will show the potential value of upcoming technologies and allow us to step up the research to integrate smart forecasting into the grid management...
