Against-the-Wind-PreviewOne of the most interesting solutions VisoTech is presenting at E-world this year  allows innovative energy companies to stay ahead of the curve in weather forecasting.

For renewable energy, weather is the predominant factor in generation; this makes accurate weather forecasts critical inputs to energy trading. Unfortunately, these forecasts can be significantly inaccurate, especially when it comes to wind. This can translate to hourly forecasts that deviate by several GW. However, most companies trading on European power markets follow the same weather forecast, leading them to make similar assumptions. When the forecast is off, everyone’s estimates are off.

What if you could anticipate in advance how much these forecasts are likely to deviate? It would gave you a major advantage over the competition, allowing you to take a position earlier and to more accurately predict price developments.

VisoTech and Energy Weather have teamed up to deliver exactly this capability. Read the full story “Against the Wind” to find it how the solution works – and how you can use it to beat the competition.
