A forecaster for solar panels

Together with its EnergyVille partners, imec has developed a simulation model designed to make the energy network more stable. It also makes the sale of energy more profitable and the work of PV researchers easier in general. Hans Goverde, a PV module technology researcher at imec and EnergyVille, tells us how this can be done. And also how, as a result, solar power is now no longer an ‘unpredictable’ source of energy.
