Before to start generating forecasts, one is to understand what the forecasts may be used for but also what will make that forecasts are seen as “good” or not. This implies having good basics in the verification of renewable energy forecasts, and especially

  • what makes the “goodness” of renewable energy forecasts
  • how to verify deterministic renewable energy forecasts
  • how to verify probabilistic renewable energy forecasts

The module is composed of a set of video lectures. The module introduction gives an overview of the theme and topics to be covered. The lecture slides are also made available.
