We are an enthusiastic and diverse group of Masters, Ph.D., and Postdoctoral researchers working in the areas of solar forecasting and grid integration of renewable energy. We are led by Professor Jan Kleissl. As a group, our research encompasses three focuses: long-term solar forecasting using numerical weather prediction; short-term solar forecasting using sky-imagers; and diverse grid integration topics which utilize solar forecasting, power system modeling, optimization, and control.
