Renewables forecasting for a more sustainable future

Growing environmental and climate change concerns, together with a rapidly growing capacity in intermittent renewable energy sources, have made forecasting for renewable generation a vital technology across the globe. Being able to accurately forecast renewable generation plays an important role in the world’s transition to a future powered by sustainable energy.

IBM Renewables Forecasting, within the Environmental Intelligence Suite, is an IBM Global Business Services led solution that generates high-accuracy forecasts of wind and solar farm assets. Through the use of AI and advanced analytics, sophisticated instrumentation, and best-in-class weather data, it helps utility operators increase the integration of renewables into the grid while optimizing operational efficiencies, resiliency and reliability.
