A new innovation project will examine how AI can be used to improve how the grid forecasts solar generation.
Continued price reductions are expected to increase the uptake of solar panels through the late 2020s, National Grid ESO has found.
Solar Power Portal caught up with Open Climate Fix co-founder Dr Jack Kelly – a former engineer at Google DeepMind – to discuss where transformer models came from, how they can apply to solar forecasting and how they could change the energy sector.
Solar Power Portal caught up with Harmony Energy CEO Peter Kavanagh about how the industry has changed and what that means for the growth of battery energy storage, as barriers to large-scale development continue to fall away.
National Grid projects ‘significantly higher’ levels of solar as it upgrades FES to include net zero
National Grid ESO's projections for solar have increased as it expects there to be "significantly higher levels of solar generation" than it predicted in its 2019 Future Energy Scenarios (FES).
Lower demand over the summer due to COVID-19 may exacerbate the significant effect on system demand embedded solar generation has.
A solar farm has provided National Grid ESO with reactive power overnight in what is being lauded as a UK first.
Centrica’s LEM hits a new milestone as flexibility from solar-plus-storage is procured by both National Grid ESO and Western Power Distribution (WPD) on the same platform.
National Grid ESO has teamed up with the University of Sheffield’s PV_Live initiative to map out ‘invisible’ solar panels and improve its forecasting.
National Grid ESO has turned to artificial intelligence to improve its solar forecasting by 33%.
Reductions in costs of solar technology, as well as co-location with increasingly cheaper storage, is set to boost solar growth in the later part of the next decade, said National Grid ESO.
