HORUS - A state of the art solar forecasting system.

To address this issue we have developed the SkyCAM System, a state of the art solar forecasting platform. Driven by computer vision and cutting edge algorithms, the system delivers tailored, local and relevant forecasts for your system.

SkyCAM significantly reduces costs and the use of diesel usage by a minimum of 15 per cent. Savings of up to 30 per cent can be achieved with SkyCAM with 99 per cent forecast accuracy.

Between 2017 and 2025 the SkyCAM Systems solution can have a Global savings impact of $7.25 billion dollars—with a $660 million dollar savings impact in Australia.
