Short-term fore­cast­ing tri­als

The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

THE Aus­tralian Re­new­able En­ergy Agency (ARENA) and Aus­tralian En­ergy Mar­ket Oper­a­tor (AEMO) are seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­ests from util­ity-scale wind and so­lar projects to par­tic­i­pate in short-term fore­cast­ing tri­als.

As part of the tri­als com­pa­nies will sub­mit their own five-minute ahead fore­casts to the AEMO to com­bine lo­cal mea­sure­ments with AEMO mod­el­ling to im­prove over­all ac­cu­racy.

“As more vari­able re­new­ables en­ter the mar­ket, we need to im­prove the ac­cu­racy of our short-term fore­casts so we can an­tic­i­pate what will hap­pen as a cloud passes over a so­lar farm or if the winds change,” ARENA chief ex­ec­u­tive Ivor Frischknecht said.
