Dr. Gurtuna will give a talk entitled “Next Generation Solar Analytics” at the Next Generation Solar 2014 Conference in Montreal on May 14th. This event will be held at the University of Montreal and will draw together many experts in solar energy research. The talk will address the need to better understand and track solar radiation levels at different time scales. From decade-long historical time series analysis to near real-time monitoring, from hourly to day-ahead forecasts, there are many solutions in today’s marketplace to meet the needs of end users, investors and systems operators. This talk will highlight state-of-the-art solutions as well as upcoming innovations that will enable us to keep an eye on solar radiation levels on a continuous basis at a fraction of the cost of existing monitoring solutions.
