With more reliable solar and wind forecasts, companies can balance the volatility and risk that renewables bring to the grid.
HOUSTON, June 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/-- Amperon Holdings, Inc., the leader in AI-powered grid analytics, today launched their new net demand forecasts, which include solar and wind generation forecasts. With forecasts that are 25% more accurate than theISO, Amperon's net demand forecasts will be a critical grid management tool for the energy transition. Amperon's net demand forecasts are already available for the Electricity Reliability of Texas (ERCOT) market and will be rolling out to more ISOs this summer.
Our renewable generation forecasts provide the other half of the equation to give our customers comprehensive insights.
As global energy demand outpaces new renewable generation, it will be more important than ever to know how much these intermittent resources will be producing. The weather is already difficult to predict. Without accurate wind or solar forecasts, utilities and grid managers will still need to rely on high-carbon emission peaker plants to make sure the grid remains balanced.
"After building the best demand forecasts, our new renewable generation forecasts provide the other half of the equation to give our customers comprehensive insights into energy markets, and to effectively integrate solar and wind into their energy management strategies," said Sean Kelly, CEO and co-founder of Amperon.
Amperon's grid-scale net demand forecasts for ERCOT provide:
By better anticipating the amount of solar and wind that will be available on the grid at any given time, companies can optimize energy trading strategies, improve operational and resource planning, and help decide when to utilize backup power or storage options – which ultimately reduces carbon intensity and keeps price slow for consumers.
Amperon's net demand forecasts will be available in all markets by the end of the year with SPP, CAISO, and PJM to launch this summer.
