Knowing where and when the sun will shine, with updated forecasts using real-time satellite images and measured ground data, is very important for grid operators to manage startup and shutdown costs of alternative energy sources.
Fuel and emissions saved with StormGeo *weather routing
2018 - today
*This figure assumes an average 2.5% fuel reduction by weather routing (GloMEEP, [no date]; ICCT, 2011), 3:1 CO2 to fuel savings (Krantz, 2016), a fuel consumption of 30 MT per day and average speed of 12.5 kn per hour, and using annual averages of distance, days and fuel consumption per route.
