***This notice of intent is now a funding opportunity. Click here to visit the Solar Forecasting 2 Funding Opportunity Announcement webpage.***
The SunShot Initiative intends to release a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support advancements in solar forecasting to enable higher penetration of solar power in the electric grid.
The Solar Forecasting 2 FOA will focus on improving solar forecasting skills, especially during challenging conditions, such as partly cloudy weather and large ramps; integrating solar forecasting with existing grid management systems, especially through probabilistic methodologies; and setting up a common test framework that can be used to validate solar irradiance and power forecast models. Applicants will be required to contribute a 20% cost share to the projects. It is anticipated that each award will be in the range of $500,000 to $3 million and will complete in one to three years.
Download the full notice of intent HERE, which includes more information about each of the three topic areas. Stay tuned for the full FOA soon.
