AI predictions assist in integrating solar energy into the grid

by Vincent Godstime

The Department of Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) has announced a £3.25 million funding package to support projects using artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate solar connections to the grid.

Forming part of the £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio, 12 AI projects looking to boost renewable energy generation will receive a share of £1 million of the funding.

This includes the London-based Open Climate Fix Ltd. (receiving £121,500) which is develop AI technology that will use satellite data to forecast the amount of solar energy transferred to the grid in order to reduce network congestion and heighten the efficiency of renewable energy transmission.
