Next Advanced, customizable and more accurate
Using on-site measures
Real-time use of monitoring systems.
Next Advanced integrates real-time feedback of on-site measurements from monitoring systems.
NEXT Advanced provides highly reliable estimates of electricity production from 5 minutes to 7 days in advance (week ahead). It combines real-time information from photovoltaic power plants and monitoring tools, such as actual irradiance or production, meteorological models and satellite data, while taking into account the configuration of your power plant.
Anticipating short-term variability
The forecasting tool with enhanced short-term accuracy thanks to real time.
Meteorological models and satellite images are excellent sources of information for solar forecasting. However, their temporal and spatial resolutions are insufficient to detect very short-term cloud behavior at site level.
Measurements from the various supervisory sensors available on site provide invaluable indications of instantaneous system performance with far greater precision. NEXT Advanced is able to take them into account to constantly recalibrate forecasts on actual measurements in the event that other data sources have incorrectly anticipated short-term variability.
Turnkey configuration with API connection
Next Advanced is customized by our teams according to your needs and on-site constraints.
Real-time data retrieval is highly recommended to substantially improve forecasting performance over short-term horizons. This is done via secure pipelines and is included in the Next Advanced service. What's more, thanks to its API system, forecasts are available directly in your supervision tool (monitoring, PMS, EMS) to facilitate operational and strategic decision-making.
NEXT Advanced's turnkey offer can be customized and coupled with storage management to optimize usage.
