ServusNet & TEC Gateway Improve Energy Forecasting

ServusNet & TEC Gateway Improve Energy Forecasting

16 October, 2014

ServusNet Informatics, a Cork based software company, specialising in wind farm operations management, have collaborated with the TEC Gateway at Cork Institute of Technology to secure funding from Enterprise Ireland to develop and commercialise a forecasting solution which can achieve significantly enhanced accuracy of wind energy forecasting. ServusNet is a software company developing Operations & Maintenance and Operational Intelligence solutions for the renewable energy industry. Growth in this sector is driving the need for sophisticated software tools to manage larger portfolios of wind and other distributed energy generation technologies. Their existing solution provides operational intelligence & decision support capability to wind farm owners & operators. ServusNet identified an opportunity to combine their turbine data analysis expertise with metrological data to develop an Enhanced Wind Energy Forecasting solution. Founded in Cork in 2007, ServusNet employees are all ex-Motorola telecoms experts who are now exploiting their telecommunications data handling expertise for the benefit of wind farmers internationally. Under the management of the TEC Gateway, the project combined ServusNet’s turbine intelligence with best-in class numerical weather prediction and turbine modelling expertise. The project team comprised of leading international academic experts in wind forecasting, turbine modelling and energy management from UCC’s Sustainable Energy Research Group, NUIM and CIT’s TEC Gateway, and project management and software development from CIT’s Nimbus Centre. A solution was developed which allows producers to earn more revenue by selling more effectively into wholesale electricity markets. The TEC Gateway is the industry interface of the Nimbus Centre, providing prototyping and innovation services and facilities to enhance existing regional industry, to create new start-ups with international potential and to build industry-led programmes to sustain growth in the Irish embedded systems industry.
