Short term prediction for solar energy

The Problem

Only 20 to 30% of Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity from the grid. One way to get electricity would be through Solar panels but how do they measure the solar power generation over a region?

Our Solution

We developed a short-term prediction for the amount of solar radiation reaching the surface, by extrapolating cloud movements and daily cloud formation patterns. This product allows solar power operators to determine the efficiency of power generation for a period of 1-3 days in advance.
