Solar Forecasting in a Challenging Insular Context

  title={Solar Forecasting in a Challenging Insular Context},
  author={Philippe Lauret and Elke Lorenz and Mathieu David},
This paper aims at assessing the accuracy of different solar forecasting methods in the case of an insular context. Two sites of La Réunion Island, Le Tampon and Saint-Pierre, are chosen to do the benchmarking exercise. Réunion Island is a tropical island with a complex orography where cloud processes are mainly governed by local dynamics. As a consequence, Réunion Island exhibits numerous micro-climates. The two aforementioned sites are quite representative of the challenging character of… CONTINUE READING
