The Met Office, WindSim join hands

The Met Office and WindSim have formed a partnership to work on more accurate wind resource assessments and wind power forecasts to meet demand for improved short term power forecasting and longer term power yield analysis.

The entities highlighted that stakeholders are demanding higher confidence in long term power yield predictions in order to support critical site selection and development decisions as well as to attract investments into new projects.

Site-specific Power Forecasts will be produced by WindSim AS using Computational Fluid Dynamic technology based on the Met Office’s site-specific Wind Production Forecast product.
