We frequently generate reports to Excel sheets. Is it possible to schedule these reports so that they are generated automatically (e.g. twice per week) and then saved on a server?
I have looked in JIRA, searched your documentation and looked at plug-ins etc. but I have not found anything related to this subject.
No, there's nothing to do this internally. The call to grab some excel is a request generated by users.
Simple answer would be to put the report's url into a curl command and bung that on a scheduler. It does require a machine to issue the request (could be the Jira server, but you need to think about file access as well as running it). I've done almost exactly this for a client - they've got a Raspberry Pi running a file-server, and adding a cron-job to that means their regular extracts are made immediately available on the share whenever the cron finishes running.
