National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory have joined forces to better understand the resources of weather-dependent and oceanic renewable energy systems.

The two national laboratories will exchange prediction forecasts and data discovery to further their mutual interest in characterizing weather-related renewable energy, according to NREL.

Yingchen Zhang, Manager of the Sensing, Measurement, and Forecasting group at NREL, said: “Both National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NREL share in a commitment to promoting scientific advancements in weather forecasting and grid stability.

“By exchanging resources and sharing in data discovery, both laboratories can more effectively support a reliable and cost-effective grid.”

The collaboration will involve the exchange of wind and solar prediction forecasts, impact analysis of extreme weather events, and the possible sharing of supercomputing resources for the advancement of both lab’s missions, said NREL.
