Development of innovative weather and power forecast models
for the grid integration of weather dependent energy sources

Welcome to the EWeLiNE Homepage

Our motivation

High quality power forecasts are becoming increasingly important for maintaining a financially viable and secure energy system, especially as the proportion of weather dependent energy sources to total power production increases. In Germany the goal is to produce 35% of all power production from renewable sources by 2020. In the research project EWeLiNE, the Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Meteorological Service) and Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology are working together with the three German TSOs Amprion GmbH, TenneT TSO GmbH und 50 Hertz Transmission GmbH to improve the weather and power forecasts for wind turbines and PV plants and to develop new forecast products, especially focusing on the grid stability.
