Forecast of hydroelectric power production for the energy industry

For hydropower production, daily forecasts of energy production for gauges and hydropower plants, e.g. in the catchment area of the upper Danube, are simulated with PROMET. The water stored as snow above storage power plants is also modeled on an hourly basis. Using different forecast scenarios, daily updates of the expected discharge and the expected energy production from hydropower can be provided.
