Generating renewable energy depends on reliably forecasting the weather and its impact on wind and solar power generation. The IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite utilizes data and advanced analytics from The Weather Company®, an IBM Business, to create the most accurate weather forecasts in the world, allowing power companies to plan generation and energy management schedules more effectively and efficiently.
The suite also helps utilities maintain the assets that deliver this power to consumers, by monitoring and modeling the vegetation growth that threatens power lines. With advanced and customizable alerts, the IBM Vegetation Management solution helps utilities maintain and repair the power lines before outages occur.
Accurately estimate renewable energy output based on advanced weather models, and compare estimates with real-time data to measure delta. Use reliable energy forecasting to take initiative and inform rapid decision making.
Model historic weather records and real-time conditions to set up wind alerts and schedule work orders for energy systems safely and proactively.
Assess the current state of vegetation across your territory and prioritize trimming schedules based on customized scoring metrics.
Influences of climate change and rapidly growing capacity have made forecasting for renewable generation challenging in many places across the globe. See how IBM's Renewables Forecasting platform generates high-accuracy energy production forecast for wind and solar farms by using advanced analytics, loT sensors and best-in-class weather data.
