Renewable Energy

The Challenge

Wind power in the Europe today provides about 15 gigawatts, which is just less than one percent of total electricity generated. Over 30 countries in Europe have called for a significant increase in the percentage of renewable electricity, with some goals as large as 33 percent and the earliest occurring by 2015. However, many steps are needed to successfully integrate intermittent wind energy into the electrical generation mix.

The Solution

Meteobit has the tools and expertise to support renewable energy goals by forecasting winds using computer models. Accurate wind forecasts that account for complexities of microclimates both horizontally across land mass and vertically above the Earth's surface, can be generated with very-high-resolution spatial computer simulations. Such simulations provide useful information to wind plant developers and operators for developing appropriate management plans.
