Potsdam (renewablepress) - The energy transition is progressing and is actively promoted by the legislator. 4Cast GmbH & Co. KG is entering the new year with clear goals. Precise yield and power forecasts reveal great potential for achieving the expansion targets of the German government by 2030 - an additional two-digit terawatt hours of clean energy annually.

"In 2023, with our accurate forecasting models, we will make the knowledge gained from the research we have been conducting since 2016 available to the industry in a profitable and customer-specific way. We will also use this knowledge to push into further markets and advance the energy transition, as well as other sectors of the economy, with our products," says Sascha Bauer (CEO, 4cast). Bauer has been CEO of 4cast since September 2022 and is responsible for the transformation of the company.


Data and learning algorithms

The in-house yield forecasting methods are based on machine learning, learning algorithms - e.g. artificial neural networks - and numerical weather data from various sources. They establish undoubted correlations between weather, location and performance - quickly, reliably and precisely.


Future-proof in a growing market

To ensure scalability for increasing customer requests in the future, the company is pushing ahead with restructuring and further development of the systems. "The market for renewables is growing and we are gaining more and more customers from the energy sector, as well as from industry," says Sascha Bauer, adding, "We have just signed a contract with an aluminum producer from Bosnia-Herzegovina. The company feeds the production of the aluminum with energy from its own wind farms. With our forecasts, the power demand for the production can be regulated more easily and according to demand. The applications of our forecasts are very diverse, as you can see."
