VALHALLA, New York, Feb. 15, 2021

Utopus Insights is pleased to announce a five-year deal signed with Infigen Energy to deliver power forecasting software for 198 MW wind farm capacity in South Australia. Scipher.Fx, the Utopus Insights predictive analytics software, forecasts renewable energy power output 5 minutes to 14 days ahead for wind and solar assets, helping asset owners and operators accurately plan their operations, and deliver sufficient and reliable renewable energy to the market.

The contract to deliver short-term (5-minute ahead) forecasting for Infigen’s Lake Bonney 2 and 3 wind farms follows a
successful Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) self-forecasting pilot project at the two farms, in partnership with parent company, Vestas. Utopus Insights had successfully used data from its short-term self-forecasting service for that pilot to generate customer cost-savings, outperforming the forecasting system of incumbent AWEFS in accuracy.

This new deal validates the success of the ARENA pilot. Infigen Energy is a developer, owner and operator of renewable energy generation assets in Australia, with a wind farm portfolio with installed capacity of 668 MW.

“We rely on Utopus’ short-term wind forecasting to improve operational and commercial outcomes for two of our wind farms. Setting up self-forecasting with Utopus has been a positive experience and we value the relationship we’ve built and look forward to the next 5 years working with Utopus,” said Matt Dickie, General Manager, Infigen Energy.

“We’re thrilled that Infigen has entrusted us as their renewable energy digital services provider for more informed business decision-making in their day-to-day operations, and maximized profits,” said Shekhar Kamath, General Manager, Business Development, Utopus Insights. “We look forward to cementing this partnership for the long term, using data science to make renewable energy more predictable and cost-competitive.”
