meteocontrol: Grid stability thanks to accurate solar energy online feed in and forecasts

meteocontrol forecasts feed-in power from solar energy around the world

meteocontrol: Grid stability thanks to accurate solar energy online feed in and forecasts

Augsburg, March 06, 2018 – meteocontrol provides accurate online feed in and forecasts that make solar energy predictable for grid operators and energy trading companies around the world. The market leader for independent PV monitoring systems reliably forecasts and monitors the amount of fed-in solar energy for individual systems and grid areas or even for entire countries. meteocontrol’s sophisticated forecasting techniques combine highly precise weather information with the yield data of more than 43,000 photovoltaic systems that meteocontrol monitors globally. The exact live online feed in help ensure a high level of grid stability and the optimum energy mix.

meteocontrol has many years‘ experience monitoring PV systems, which in turn gives the company access to an enormous quantity of measurement data. As a result, meteocontrol draws from a highly representative basis for calculating the projected capacity of fed-in power from solar energy. Instead of relying on assumptions, the forecasts draw from real operating data provided by over 43,000 PV systems registered in the meteocontrol portal that together produce a total installed power output of around 12 gigawatts. This gives meteocontrol the ability to compare the predicted energy quantity with the quantity actually generated. Forecasts with exact coordinates provided by national and international weather services are considered in the calculations. With the help of machine learning, the very latest in computer learning methods, meteocontrol links this information to the live online feed in and forecasts derived from satellite images in order to produce an optimum grid prediction. By calculating the current status, the Augsburg-based company achieves much higher-quality predictions for intraday forecasts than conventional procedures yield.

Online feed in for the emerging PV markets
„For grid operators, the online feed in and forecasts are extremely important for ensuring stable grids and the optimum power supply. In many European countries, using online feed in and forecasts has already become standard practice as they are also used for market regulation as well as serve as a basis for such remuneration models as the EEG remuneration in Germany,“ explains Robert Pfatischer, Managing Director of meteocontrol. „For many years, the four German grid operators have used our forecasts and online feed in. With the current solar boom on every continent around the globe, they’re becoming more important on an international level, too. India, China, the whole of Latin America: These and many other countries and regions have ambitious development targets and need quick, reliable forecasts. meteocontrol can provide them!“

Highlighting potential improvements
Using the PV feed-in data collected by meteocontrol, interesting developments and possible potential for optimization can be highlighted. The latest evaluation shows that solar-energy production in Germany increased only very slightly over the last three years and was less than the 2.5 gigawatts per year needed to achieve the country’s climate targets. Although fed-in energy reached a record level last year, maximum feed-in fell from 72.5 percent to 72 percent. One reason for this was bad weather during periods when the maximum solar-energy yield was to be expected from a meteorological point of view. Other reasons include aging PV systems with reduced efficiency and the feed-in management of grid operators. With precise grid predictions and highly accurate live online feed in, down-regulation can be largely avoided and solar systems are only rarely affected by this. Optimum grid management also reduces the use of conventional generation systems. meteocontrol“s aim is to establish this standard in all PV markets worldwide and thus encourage the integration of solar energy.

meteocontrol is the leading global provider of independent solar monitoring systems and currently monitors more than 43,000 PV systems with a total power output of over 12 GWp. For more than 40 years, meteocontrol has developed monitoring software and hardware for solar PV systems. They offer planning and commissioning of monitoring systems, as well as yield forecasts, technical due diligence, and energy and weather data analytics. Their independent engineering division has supported projects with a total investment of more than 13 billion euros. meteocontrol GmbH is a member of SFCE Shunfeng International Clean Energy Limited, with headquarters in Augsburg, Germany, and Shanghai, as well as subsidiaries in Lyon, Madrid, Milan, Santiago de Chile, Tokyo, Chicago and San Salvador.

Asahi Kasei Europe participates in European multi-partner project on CCUS technology

Dusseldorf, 14 November 2017 – Asahi Kasei Europe is participating in the three-year multi-partner ALIGN-CCUS project to help transform six European industrial regions into economically robust, low-carbon centres by 2025. Asahi Kasei“s electrolyzer technology will be one of the cornerstones for CO2 reuse and therefore the reduction of CO2 emissions.

On November 7th, the ALIGN-CCUS Project Consortium announced the launch of the ALIGN-CCUS (carbon capture, utilisation and storage) Project, a partnership project which runs from 2017 to 2020 and consists of 31 research institutes and industrial companies from five European countries. The project received EUR15 million funding from the European ERA-NET ACT (Accelerating CCS Technologies) fund and aims at transforming six European industrial regions into low-carbon centres. ACT is a European Union initiative to accelerate the deployment of safe and cost-effective carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies. ACT receives funding support from the European Commission“s Horizon 2020 instrument, the ERA NET Cofund.

Europe in general and especially Germany with its ambitious goals for CO2 reduction, its drop-out of nuclear energy by 2022 and its high share of electric power supply by renewable energy sources have a high need for reliable CCUS- and power storage technologies. Hydrogen has been in the centre of interest in the recent years, not only in the field of energy storage (Power-to-Gas) but also as an important component to produce fuel for automobiles (Power-to-Fuel).

Cooperation with industrial and academic leaders in the CCUS field

Asahi Kasei with its leading technology for ion exchange membranes and chlor-alkali electrolysis has been chosen as partner for the ALIGN-CCUS Project and provides its alkaline water electrolysis system for the production of green hydrogen. Hydrogen produced with Asahi Kasei“s alkaline water electrolysis system and CO2 captured at power plants will be transformed into fuels such as green methanol and green dimethyl ether (DME). This system can be scaled-up and has high energy exchange efficiency. With this technology Asahi Kasei contributes to a decrease in CO2 footprints in the fields of transportation and power generation.

Together with European partner institutions and companies, Asahi Kasei Europe as the operational headquarter of Asahi Kasei in Europe will be a member of Work Package 4 of the ALIGN-CCUS Project. Work Package 4 will focus on designing, constructing and operating a first-of-a-kind, full-chain CO2 capture and conversion project in an industrial environment. The applicability and environmental performance of CCU products, methanol and DME, will also be assessed along with potential market demand. Together with prominent partners such as RWE, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe, FEV, Bosch, DEUTZ, RWTH Aachen University, TNO and ECN, Asahi Kasei Europe will conduct a demonstration experiment in Germany.

„The ALIGN-CCUS project contributes to reducing CO2 emissions in the fields of transportation and power generation. We are very happy to participate in this project by using our alkaline water electrolysis system to produce green hydrogen. By further improving our technology we will be a leading company for the realization of a hydrogen society“, Hideki Tsutsumi, Managing Director of Asahi Kasei Europe said.

On track for success in Turkey: meteocontrol provides monitoring for Kon-Tek’s entire PV portfolio

Leading Turkish operation management provider for photovoltaic systems opts for meteocontrol

On track for success in Turkey: meteocontrol provides monitoring for Kon-Tek

meteocontrol GmbH provides monitoring system for the entire portfolio of Kon-Tek Otomasyon (Turkey). (Source: @Kon-Tek Otomasyon)

Augsburg, November 07, 2017 – meteocontrol GmbH has won a strong partner in the shape of Kon-Tek Otomasyon AS, one of Turkey’s leading O&M service providers: Kon-Tek wants to control and monitor its entire portfolio of existing PV systems and all new systems using the meteocontrol monitoring system. meteocontrol has already equipped four new solar parks and the first existing systems with its monitoring components. All the systems will be monitored via the central platform VCOM (virtual control room).

The Turkish PV market has reached its peak value to date in 2017 with newly installed capacity of around 1 GWp. Ever greater solar portfolios require professional monitoring. O&M service providers such as the Kon-Tek Energy Department face the challenge of consistently and efficiently implementing monitoring for their constantly growing system portfolio. This calls for an independent monitoring system that is flexible in terms of the integrated components and brings together both existing and new systems in one platform.

Well positioned with monitoring from meteocontrol
Kon-Tek wants to be ideally equipped for the future with a uniform monitoring system. The PV service provider is focusing on growth: By the end of 2017, the portfolio should cover around 100 MWp installed capacity, with the target of doubling that amount in 2018. To monitor all the systems efficiently and securely, Kon-Tek is retrofitting the entire portfolio of existing systems to the monitoring solution from meteocontrol and also installing the hardware and software of the market leader for independent monitoring systems into new systems. meteocontrol has equipped four solar parks, each with a capacity of between 4 and 5 MWp, with data loggers from the blue’Log X series, set up the systems in the VCOM monitoring portal, and put them into operation. „We have experience in the Turkish market and offer special packages for unlicensed and licensed projects, in other words, systems greater than 1 MWp,“ explains Martin Schneider, Managing Director of meteocontrol. „The flexibility of our data loggers and the VCOM software with its analysis options are hugely important specifically for operation management providers like Kon-Tek. We also offer our customers the necessary engineering to ensure smooth implementation. This includes planning, design and commissioning of the entire monitoring system.“

Simple upgrading of existing systems
meteocontrol has upgraded the first existing Kon-Tek systems with a capacity of 12 MWp to the uniform monitoring system. Where necessary, new hardware is also installed, but, for the most part, the upgrade is carried out simply and quickly by importing the system data. „The professional monitoring system offers security, since the contingency risk is noticeably reduced as a result, and yields rise. That convinces investors, especially those who already know the system and appreciate the added value,“ says Martin Schneider.

Successful cooperation
„We are delighted to be working with meteocontrol. We want to fully exploit the growth potential offered by the PV market in Turkey and in our neighboring countries, and be a key player. To achieve that we need a monitoring partner with reliable technology and innovative solutions,“ says Lütfi Yücel, Director Energy and Automation. „The meteocontrol monitoring solution has proven its worth. The projects are running smoothly. We appreciate, in particular, the training and joint workshops on site. The meteocontrol team provides our employees with the know-how they need to install, configure and commission the monitoring hardware themselves in the future. We are thus in a position to implement our projects even quicker.“

meteocontrol is the leading global provider of independent solar monitoring systems and currently monitors more than 43,000 PV systems with a total power output of over 12 GWp.

Augsburg/Santiago de Chile, October 11, 2017 – meteocontrol GmbH, the worldwide leading provider of independent photovoltaic (PV) monitoring systems, continues to pursue an international market presence. With the founding of a joint venture in Chile, the company is meeting the needs of the growing photovoltaic markets in South America. meteocontrol Chile SpA has its headquarters in Santiago de Chile, and is focusing on tapping the markets in Chile, Peru and Bolivia.

The signs point to growth – both at meteocontrol and for the use of solar energy in Chile. „We want to push our internationalization. As a pioneer in solar energy in South America, Chile offers the best conditions,“ says Martin Schneider, Managing Director at meteocontrol. „Through this joint venture, we will be better positioned to care for our existing local clients and provide faster technical support, which is currently hindered by the time difference with Germany. Of course, we are also focusing on gaining new clients and completing further projects, both in Chile and in the neighboring countries Peru and Bolivia,“ says Schneider. The joint venture partner is the Chilean company Ingetrace Solar SpA.

Monitoring for Public Solar Rooftop Program in Chile
Within the framework of the Public Solar Rooftop Program „Programa de Techos Solares Publicos“ meteocontrol has, to date, installed monitoring systems on 106 photovoltaic systems on public buildings in northern and central Chile in cooperation with Ingetrace SpA, a Chilean PV service provider. This successful collaboration inspired the establishment of meteocontrol Chile SpA under the direction of Fernando de la Rosa: „Our whole team is looking forward to the new challenge and we are contributing the necessary experience from our many years in the sale of technologically demanding products. Photovoltaic has become the most economical form of energy production in Chile and thus offers huge growth potential. The goal is to take complete advantage of this opportunity.“
