We use the WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) model to create accurate wind power forecasts. It enables us to refine resolutions (for example from 100 x 100 kilometres to 1 x 1 kilometres) and show land use and surface conditions in high definition. The model also covers multiple altitudes, making it possible to provide actual forecast information at hub height. Accurate local forecasts enable wind power generator operators to estimate their power output more precisely, making their trade benefits to energy grid companies more attractive.
High resolution weather models can also support a range of operations, such as power generator maintenance.
Our wind power forecasts can:
- Measure the wind capabilities of an area
- Determine wind expectations
- Eradicate uncertainty around wind power
- Help to reduce downtime
- Support efficient production of wind power
