Managing Director of GP Joule (Germany)
We’ve worked with CNR since 2012 and use their production forecasting services for our solar power plant of 40 MWp (megawatt-peak) in the Aquitaine region. In 2014, we entrusted them with a second plant of 36 MWp so CNR now manages 76 MWp for us. CNR receives the essential data from our installations, generates the daily production forecasts and sends the production estimations to RTE. They provide perfect service and the relations with their team are very professional. We’re currently discussing other opportunities with CNR.
Director of Power Energy Management (ENGIE, Romania)
Having accurate production forecasts is vital in order to manage our wind farms and to keep ENGIE competitive on the Romanian energy market. We chose CNR as one of our data suppliers following an international call for offers, due to the quality and veracity of the forecasts. We’re very satisfied with their work and the constructive partnership we enjoy with them. Sharing information and good practices helps us to improve our performance.
