33 FORECASTING OF DNI CSP needs a high DNI forecast accuracy especially in cloud-free cases with high DNI (different from, e.g., PV) Good forecasts in case of low DNI are required (-> good water cloud mask forecast) as well as for medium DNI situations ( ->good forecast of cirrus cloud optical properties) CSP technologies generally operate only in areas with high DNI and low cloud cover depending on the geographical region of interest and its vicinity to global aerosol sources, the priority is set either on good aerosol or cirrus forecasts The MACC (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate) project of ECMWF in the scope of GMES provides analysis and forecast of aerosols integrated into the Integrated Forecast System (IFS) 32

34 FORECASTING OF DNI PRINCIPLE Measurement data Clear sky model ECWMF irradiance forecast Hourly site-specific GHI forecasts Postprocessing Direct/ diffuse model DNI forecasts 33
