Electrical grids must be balanced in terms of supply and demand at every moment in time. Solar PV however is a variable generation source, dependent on cloud cover.
Open Climate Fix is developing a completely open source solution for forecasting of clouds using satellite imagery, weather forecasts and PV data.
Dan will explain us to how this works, the applications, what carbon it is saving and the next steps. He’ll also tell us about his journey founding Open Climate Fix.
Dan is a mathematician by training. His first job was in energy 20 years ago in Australia, which opened his eyes to this fascinating world of an essential, non-storable commodity. With renewables and batteries, things have changed a lot. In 2019 he co-founded Open Climate Fix.
