Overview of the solar model built with MAP to predict solar irradiance

The objective of the project was to provide a way to optimise the integration of battery storage and PV solar power. By predicting solar irradiance, and hence solar power from PV installations, gives solar plant operators the ability to maximise revenues by charging and discharging batteries at the optimum time.

The project integrates near real-time satellite imagery, AI and an external Python solar calculation library with the core MAP framework to deliver an innovative and accurate way to predict solar irradiance data.
