This web page and the associated fact sheets—in English and Spanish—discuss the links between weather forecasts and photovoltaic (PV) output, as well as the various methods for conducting forecasting. Included is an example of “upscaling” in which representative systems are used to develop a forecast for a larger pool of systems. The authors also analyze the accuracy of tools and present a survey of tools used worldwide.
