December Webinar - IEA PVPS Task 16

On December 15, we are pleased to welcome back the IEA PVPS Task 16 on solar resources for the final webinar of 2022!

About the webinar:

n this webinar, the existing and advancing solar nowcasting techniques with the use of all-sky imagers (ASIs) are presented and evaluated. For this, a benchmarking exercise has been carried out, at CIEMATS’s Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) in southern Spain, focusing on state-of-the-art surface solar irradiance nowcastings derived from ASIs. The speakers will identify the strengths and the weaknesses of the implemented algorithms and evaluate the ASI-based nowcast performance under various cloud conditions, time horizons and against typical reference nowcast models. The analyses reveal the feasibility of ASIs to reliably nowcast GHI and estimate solar power at distant times or detect sudden GHI fluctuations.


The webinar will welcome the following presenters:

- Jan Remund, Meteotest (Switzerland)

- Bijan Nouri, DLR Institute of Solar Research (Spain)

- Stavros Logothetis  - University of Patras (Greece)

- Andreas Kazantzidis University of Patras - (Greece)


The webinar will be moderated by ISES Immediate President Dr. Dave Renné.

The duration of the webinar is 90 minutes and the webinar will include a Q/A session for the audience to ask their questions to the presenters. The recording of the webinar as well as the presentations given will be made available to ISES Members after the webinar.
