RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC- After several years in the making, a report produced by RTI International, Benchmarking of Ensemble Streamflow Forecast Usage in Hydropower Planning, has been published by CEATI International.
The report includes a literature review of the use of streamflow ensembles, industry level surveys and interviews to benchmark the current use of ensembles, and an interactive Roadmap to guide users through the many different components of developing, verifying, processing, and using ensemble data.
The use of streamflow ensembles in hydropower operations can be extremely complicated, but there are many simpler approaches to using this information. The study and associated Roadmap is intended to guide a wide range of users through these simpler approaches, which will encourage improved forecast-based decision-making.
CEATI International is a user-driven organization that provides technology solutions to its electrical utility participants, who are brought together to collaborate and act jointly to advance the industry through the sharing and developing of practical and applicable knowledge.
