Weather forecasts aim to make renewable power predictable

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. But will power predictions based on weather forecasts ever be good enough for a system fuelled almost entirely by volatile renewable sources?
