Facilitate grid-friendly operations with advanced Sky Imaging Solar Nowcasting

Wematics is at the forefront of solar power forecasting with SkyAI, its edge AI sky camera. SkyAI uses fog computing, deep learning and IoT to analyze cloud movements in real time. Solar energy operators often struggle with fluctuations in energy output caused by unpredictable cloud dynamics. SkyAI addresses this challenge with detailed solar radiation maps that enable precise solar nowcasting, efficiently manage PV farm output and minimize trading risks. With SkyAI, Wematics is paving the way for large-scale deployment of sky camera systems, reducing uncertainty and promoting more sustainable PV installations.

Wematics is part of the ESA BIC program in the years 2022 to 2024.
