Improve Efficiency and Decision Making through Accurate Weather Data 

Meteomatics detailed weather forecasts are helping businesses within the energy sector gain weather insights, by giving access to a rich database of accurate and detailed weather forecasts.

Meteomatics’ API provides access to a range of weather parameters with incredible detail covering the globe!

Thus, helping to handle some of the major challenges of the energy sector:

  • Increasing importance of renewable energy sources due to the energy transition.

  • Increasing deployment of both wind and PV across Europe means that power systems are becoming highly dependent on the weather and will have more of influence on price.

  • Integration of weather data for the identification of market opportunities.

  • Monitoring and quantifying the weather risk.

The API is already consumed and trusted by organizations across the energy industry, including TSOs, DSOs and energy trading companies. Helping them improve operational efficiencies, maximize revenues and mitigate adverse weather impacts.

Meteomatics API: One Endpoint to Access all Data and Data Services

Meteomatics RESTful API can be used to retrieve historic, current, and forecast weather data. This includes model data and observational data in time series and areal formats. Areal formats are also offered through a WMS2/WFS3-compatible interface. Geographic and time series data can be combined in certain file formats, such as NetCDF.

Key benefits for the energy sector

  • Access most accurate weather data, based on the latest observations and high-quality weather and satellite data from leading centres around the globe, while taking into account the detail of the topography (down to 90 meters*) and providing nowcasts in 5-minute timesteps.

  • Solve business challenges and compare performances by understanding past events, using historical data (back to 1979).

  • Minimize risk by defining risk windows (alerts) and likelihood of extreme weather events (weather warnings).

  • Consume weather data when and where you need it, by making route queries for power lines or data requests for a polygon.
  • Quickly integrate our data into your own systems, by selecting from a range of data formats and open source data connectors, such as ArcGIS, C++, Excel, Google Maps, Power BI, Python, MATLAB and many more.
