Solar forecasting: assessing and monitoring cloud coverage and how it will effect solar energy output
CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, has developed a suite of solar forecasting technologies including Skycam-based solar forecasting (SBSF) which operate using low-cost cameras and incorporates significant machine learning and image processing expertise.
CSIRO is seeking responses from proponents capable of working with us to develop and commercialise the SBSF technology. We are looking for commercial and research collaborators that have the technical know-how, manufacturing, marketing and financial capacity to further develop, sell and support the technology. This is an opportunity to express interest in developing and commercialising the technology for specific applications, market segments and territories across the world.
This is a two-stage process where an initial expression of interest is sought (Stage 1), followed by a more detailed discussion with interested parties to determine where they see value in deploying the technology and how this could be achieved. We will use the information provided to explore potential development and commercialisation opportunities with selected interested parties.
