We work with ISOs, RTOs, utilities, and governments to study the impact of integrating large-scale renewables into the electric grid, and plan for the transmission of renewable energy from areas where the resource is abundant to where the energy is needed. As a provider of operational wind and solar plant forecasts and high-resolution data, we have been, and continue to be a key contributor to large-scale grid integration studies, simulations, planning and management.
In addition to planning for the future, ISOs and RTOs need to be able to predict the operational output from wind and solar farms in their regions days and minutes in advance to ensure the reliability of their electrical services. We provide those minute-, hour-, day-, and week-ahead forecasts. Most North American ISOs and RTOs use our forecasts, as they are proven to be the most accurate in the industry.
