Last weekend, a storm over Algeria stirred up huge amounts of Saharan dust into the atmosphere. Between high air pressure over southeastern Europe and an Atlantic low, the dust particles were transported across the Iberian Peninsula and France to Germany, which had effects on the European solar production.
New solution for new challenges in Redispatch 2.0 – N-ERGIE Netz GmbH uses flexible software service from energy & meteo systems
Nuremberg/Oldenburg, 7 January 2021 – The future rules for integrating renewable energies into the grid pose major challenges for German distribution system operators, but also offer scope for new solutions. N-ERGIE Netz GmbH now relies on the new redispatch platform provided by energy & meteo systems as a pure software service.
At the beginning of this week, a surge of cold polar air shifted south over the USA and led to a massive freezing of wind turbines unusually early in the season. At peak times, the total production loss was around 20 GW. The occurrence of freezing rain as well as the effects on electricity production are difficult to predict. Nevertheless, energy & meteo systems integrated this phenomenon into the power forecast.
On 12 September 2020, a phenomenon similar to the effect of Sahara dust in the atmosphere could be observed over parts of Germany leading to a reduced solar power production. The forest fires in the Western USA generated soot particles that were hurled to high altitudes and then transported by the jet stream to Central Europe.
Well prepared for Redispatch 2.0: E.ON relies on innovative platform solution from energy & meteo systems
Oldenburg, 17 September 2020 – To implement the new Redispatch 2.0 requirements, nine distribution system operators of the E.ON Group are relying on the know-how of energy & meteo systems.

Oldenburg/Istanbul, 1 September 2020 – For the first time, geothermal plants with an installed capacity of 103 MW were recently added to the Virtual Power Plant in Turkey operated by Pure Energy. With this step the Turkish power trader and energy & meteo systems, the German provider of the Virtual Power Plant technology, have reached the next milestone in their collaboration.
Oldenburg (Germany), 29 June 2020 – In the sunny south of India, the Pavagada solar park covers a remarkable area of 53 square kilometers and ranks currently with a total output of around two gigawatts second place among the world's largest solar parks. Since the beginning of 2020, energy & meteo systems has been forecasting the power generation of this park for the companies Tata and SB Energy – two of the largest operators of the park, which together are responsible for around 700 megawatts of plant capacity.
With immediate effect, energy & meteo systems will deliver day-ahead and intraday forecasts for a period of twelve months for four solar and nine wind farms with a total capacity of 557 MW to the transmission system operator OC-SENI of the Caribbean state.
Oldenburg/Stuttgart, 20 January 2020 – To make more efficient use of the existing power grid, the transmission system operator TransnetBW and the energy service provider energy & meteo systems have jointly defined meaningful locations for real-time monitoring of overhead lines in the TransnetBW network area.
Oldenburg, 13 December 2019 – With its project FuturePowerFlow for grid operators, the software developer energy & meteo systems is one of seven German and in total 75 European companies selected last week by the European Innovation Council as worthy of funding. Thanks to the exact planning of the grid integration of renewable energies for a period of 48 hours, grid operators will for the first time be able to detect impending bottlenecks in the electricity grid at an early stage and take proactive countermeasures.
Oldenburg, 28 Oktober 2019 – As the first suppliers in Germany, the energy service provider energy & meteo systems and energy group Alpiq have integrated the SOGL into the direct marketing process.
Oldenburg, 18 September 2019 – Two slides, colorful lamps and walls, round corners, tapering halls – the new building moved into by energy & meto systems is not only uncommon when seen from a technical and architectural standpoint.
CNR and energy & meteo systems have signed a contract to remote control solar and wind power plants in France

The expanding dynamics of renewable energies in Mexico and Central America is increasing the pressure to respond to changes made by incorporating professionally developed forecast models as the basis for planning and ensuring system stability.
The distribution grid operator DelSur and energy and meteo systems executed the second phase of the program DeveloPPP by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, which engages in the promotion of innovative projects in developing countries in order to bring medium and long-term advantages to society.
The share of electricity from weather-dependent wind and solar energy in the German power mix keeps growing. That puts pressure on the electricity sector to be much more flexible in managing power demand and supply.
The rise of volatile wind and solar power in the share of Germany's electricity generation means that keeping the grid stable becomes an ever more complex – and potentially costly – task. Predicting how many renewable megawatts will be fed into the network at any given moment is key to a safe and efficient management of the electricity network.
The Virtual Power Plant by energy & meteo systems has been licensed for connecting to the EPEX Spot per API interface (M7, ComXerv). Active immediately, customers using our Virtual Power Plant can trade their energy quantities directly at the EPEX Spot in the continuous intraday market. Via the integration of order books as well as other useful trading functions, operations can be executed directly on the market and without serial interfaces.
energy & meteo systems and the consulting company Consentec were commissioned last year by the Federal Ministry of the Environment to examine the impact of the planned offshore wind capacity on the secondary and tertiary reserve energy of the national electricity system.
