Renewable energy sources are crucial to the decarbonisation of the economy, but their integration into the power system requires a change in the operating and planning model. The recently concluded Smart4RES project led to improvements in the forecasting of renewable production, and it will support the decision-making of power system operators and market agents, under uncertainty and risk.
