IBM announced a new system, known as Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecasting (HyRef), which uses big data analytics to predict the availability of renewable energy. IBM asserts its big data prominence once again, this time in a new system from IBM Research to help bring more renewable energy to the power grid by predicting the availability of such energy.
IBM announced an advanced power- and weather-modeling technology that will help utilities increase the reliability of renewable energy resources. The solution combines weather prediction and analytics to accurately forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy. This will enable utilities to integrate more renewable energy into the power grid, helping to reduce carbon emissions while improving clean energy output.
