Germany Is Using AI to Smooth the Fluctuations in Its Power Grid

The machine learning software is being used to predict the supply of renewable energy days in advance.​ Getty Maria Wachala Jul 13, 2016 Renewable energy like solar and wind power are changing the way we generate electricity. Our energy production is becoming cleaner and cheaper, and in many countries renewables are starting to overtake fossil fuels as the primary power source. But one of the biggest problems with renewables has yet to be solved: what happens if it’s cloudy? More specifically, the problem is that renewable energy sources can never provide a constant source of power.
