Featured Speaker: Amber Motley, Director, Short Term Forecasting, California ISO

About the Webinar: This webinar from October 19, 2023, focuses on the importance of renewable energy forecasting to grid operations with high penetrations of renewable resources. Renewable resource forecasts have become a critical part of grid operations, informing uncertainty products, the market optimization, and the reliability of the grid throughout the real time and day ahead horizons. This webinar addresses the optimization of forecasts from multiple renewable providers, and the evolution towards new renewable resource types of co-located and hybrid resources. This includes the additional data requirements for Hybrid and Co-located resources, and the use of confidence bands in probabilistic renewable forecasts in planning Day Ahead and future time horizons to ensure the uncertainty of these resources is accounted for in system reliability considerations.
