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