🌟 Ready to Power the Future with Flower? Join us as a Master Thesis student in the trading team for spring 2024! 🌟

πŸš€ About Flower: At Flower, we're the driving force behind the renewable energy revolution. We believe electricity is the key to fighting climate change. As the backbone of innovation, we're reshaping the electricity landscape to make renewables the norm. Operating a cutting-edge virtual power plant, we optimize diverse assets for maximum benefit at every levelβ€”local, regional, and system-wide.

πŸ’Ό Thesis - An evaluation of parametric models for solar plant forecasting: This thesis aims to investigate the possibility of creating a simple parametric model for solar plant forecasting, a model that can be adapted to the power production of a specific solar plant. General heuristic models do not include the impact of local geography and shadowing from neighboring buildings or trees. With the help of machine learning techniques, the goal of this thesis is to address the question of whether a simple parametric model can be built to reproduce the power production profile of a specific solar plant given live weather data. The research of this thesis will initiate the path towards the perfect forecasting model for power production of solar plants. If an accurate 1-to-1 relation between live weather data and power production can be established, production risk assessment gets reduced to the accuracy of weather forecasts, with no relevant uncertainty included by the model.
