Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of solar and wind forecasting is expanding its horizons due to the needs of the electricity supply industry. What is needed for further future expansion of the integration of renewables into the electricity delivery system are techniques for forecasting on several time scales, and even blending the models for different scales. Additionally necessary is advanced techniques for probabilistic or interval forecasting. In addition, whole region forecasting for impacts on the local grid is needed. Thus, we invite papers on topics related to this and other issues.
