How AI is changing weather forecasts for solar and wind

Using AI for better weather predictions can help with energy planning.

Electric grids are increasingly being saturated with weather-dependent renewables. At the same time, power systems are also getting challenged by intensifying and unpredictable extreme weather.

So can weather prediction models rise to the challenge? The answer may be in machine learning.

This episode unpacks how artificial intelligence could make weather modeling much more powerful — and limit the use of fossil fuels as a backup to renewables.

Latitude Media editor Lisa Martine Jenkins brings us a story titled, “Could AI-fueled weather forecasts boost renewable energy production?” from contributor Emma Woollacott.
