Solar Irradiance Nowcasting with Satellite Data

In this white paper, contributors Mathieu Turpin (Reuniwatt), Pilar Rípodas (AEMET) and Jochen Grandell (EUMETSAT) present the journey of satellite data from space to solar plant, following the launch of the Meteosat Third Generation Imager-1 (MTG-I1) – the first of a new generation of satellites providing crucial insights for the early detection and prediction of fast-developing severe storms, weather forecasting and climate monitoring.

This white paper highlights the accomplishments achieved through MTG characteristics, as well as the positive impact of the additional datasets and their improved quality and accuracy in solar irradiance forecasts in particular.
