“Amprion and UBIMET have been working together successfully for many years in the field of runoff forecasts. As we are convinced of the quality of the UBIMET forecasts, Amprion will additionally commission UBIMET to forecast wind feed-in from 2021. UBIMET was able to prevail in a benchmark against several competitors. The UBIMET data will be used at Amprion to optimize forecasts in the areas of system management and EEG marketing”.
