Solar Resources and Forecasting Workshop

NREL, Golden, Colorado, USA
June 20, 2011 - June 22, 2011

"Surface Solar Irradiance: Cloud Observations and Radiative Transfer Modeling". 

Ned Snell of AER discussed a research perspective on solar forecast approaches. View the presentation.

The Solar Resources and Forecasting Workshop was hosted at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL).

Dr. Snell's solar forecasting presentation occurred within the track "Short-Term and Day-Ahead Forecasting". The track content included:

  • Cloud Motion Detection From Numerical Weather Prediction and Observations by Ground-Based and Satellite Sensors
  • Model Overviews and Validations
  • Radiative Transfer in Numerical Weather Prediction Models
  • Model Validation Studies
