EU Daily Renewables Forecast: Solar Remains Strong, Norwegian Wind Higher
Forecasts suggest continued high solar PV output in the next nine days across central western Europe, while wind output in Norway has been revised up according to spotrenewables.
- German wind output is forecast to rise modestly on the week next week. Forecasts suggest combined onshore and offshore output to reach load factors of 1-16% during base-load hours in the period to 17 Sept. Solar PV output is forecast to dip mid next week before rebounding with production at 9.2-23.4GW during peak-load hours in the next nine days.
- German combined wind and solar PV output for power generation so far this month stood at 3.3TWh, equal to a share of 35.5% of total power output, Fraunhofer ISE data show.
- Solar PV output in France is expected to remain strong in the next nine days to range between 3.7GW to 7.96GW during peak-load hours, with the lowest output at the end of the forecast period. French power demand is expected to peak at 54.3GW today. Consumption is forecast at 43.1-54.3 on 11-17 Sept, RTE data show.
- Wind output in Norway has been revised up to reach 898MW to 1.5GW in the period until 17 Sept.
- Temperatures across Europe are expected to remain above normal for the coming week before drifting slightly cooler in the second week of the outlook back towards normal.
