Webinar

Energy Forecasting to Maximize
Use of Renewables

Are you losing opportunities to deliver more wind energy to the grid?

By focusing too much on the risk of getting caught short in the real-time electricity market, you could be missing the chance to schedule more energy into the day-ahead market.

This webinar uses simple language to explain the concept of probabilistic energy forecasting and then discusses in detail how it can be valuable in scheduling energy to maximize the use of renewables. Included is a discussion of who benefits most from the probabilistic approach to energy forecasting.
