Welcome to the University of Arizona Institute for Energy Solutions and Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences’s Power Forecasting Group homepage.

We’ve partnered with local electric utilities to provide operational forecasts of wind and solar power that cover 1 minute to 8 days in the future. These forecasts reduce the uncertainty utilities face with these variable resources ultimately enabling the integration of more renewable power onto the grid. You can find more information here.

Public forecasts of temperature and other variables are available at https://forecasting.energy.arizona.edu/public/

In addition to forecasting, we’ve also work with eight utilities in the Southwest as part of the SVERI project to study the long term impacts of these variable power resources. Find more information here.
