Energy meteorology systems

Forecasts for a reliable energy system

Digitalisation, automation and the usage of intelligent algorithms are becoming increasingly important factors for success in the energy industry.

This is particularly true for the integration of renewable energies (RE), for which precise and reliable forecasts of the expected energy production and consumption are indispensable. This can increase efficiency, minimise risks, and save costs.

Our real-time power estimates and forecasts are the centrepiece of innovative solutions for reliable grid operation and planning with weather-dependent energy sources.

Get to know our portfolio and let us support you to achieve your goals. As a reliable and innovative partner, we are always prepared to support you.

Our solutions

  • Forecasts of the expected renewable energies (RE) generation in the next few minutes up to days.
  • Estimates of the energy generation from spatially distributed renewable energy plants.
  • Forecasts of the expected electricity, heating/cooling, and water consumption by households, enterprises, and utility networks.
  • Dynamic methods for the determination and prediction of the possible ampacity of overhead conductors,  considering external weather conditions.
  • Forecasts of the expected power flows within (horizontal) and between (vertical) the different voltage levels in the grid.
  • Consulting and project planning based on state-of-the-art methods from science and research on the characterization and mapping of energy-meteorology relationships.
