Amperon’s net demand and renewable forecasts are now in CAISO

Amperon's net demand and renewable forecasts have come to the Golden State. With solar and wind generation accounting for 27% of California’s energy mix in 2022 with goals to be 100% carbon free by 2045, accurate net-demand forecasts will be more important than ever as California is facing an even deeper duck curve

CAISO Net Demand and Renewable Forecasts

To help companies more effectively integrate renewables into their energy management strategies, our net-demand forecasts give you insights into the next 14 days – which is 7 days longer than CAISO provides. You’ll be able to:

  • Easily visualize how much dispatchable generation is available 14 days out.
  • Compare Amperon’s net demand forecasts to the ISO’s net demand forecasts, as well as compare day-ahead forecasts.
  • Check historical forecasts for any hour for the past 4 days.
  • See solar and wind generation forecasts that utilize granular weather points and site-specific monitored wind generation data.

Already available for ERCOT, PJM, and SPP.

Amperon's forecasts give you insights into the next 14 days while the ISO only provides their forecasts 7 days out.

Battery Optimization in CAISO

With our new renewable forecasts, Amperon now provides comprehensive insights for both the supply and demand side of the grid. As more wind and solar generation is added, CAISO faces a congestion challenge – what to do when there is too much wind or solar. To ensure the grid remains balanced, California is investing in more battery storage capacity. Currently, California boasts 4.9 GW of battery storage capacity, with plans to add another 7.6 GW by the end of 2024.

To efficiently store surplus energy during periods of low demand and release it when needed, battery storage efforts will need higher levels of granular data. Amperon’s short-term forecasts will provide battery storage operators with better insights of when to store energy for later use, or sell excess energy back to the grid. 

The energy transition is bringing unique challenges to the grid. With Amperon’s accurate forecasts for both supply and demand side, companies will not only maximize their assets but also help relieve the grid in times of stress.
