Load Prediction System

Improved weather prediction and precise spatial analysis of small-scale weather events are crucial for energy management, as is the need to further develop and implement advanced technologies. The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), a leader in atmospheric research, development and technology transfer for more than 50 years, is uniquely qualified to support the renewable energy industry in these endeavors.  NCAR scientists are already actively engaged with industry decision makers on how best to foresee and respond to short- and long-term changes in atmospheric conditions to mitigate risks associated with weather, particularly wind and solar energy prediction.
