Empowering the wind global energy industry
with the most accurate forecasts
Helping wind energy companies operate efficiently and maximise their returns
Meteomatics accurate wind energy forecasts help operators and energy traders, maximise operational efficiency and gain competitive advantage in the energy trading market. Meteomatics API gives access to nowcasts, weather forecast, historic data (back to 1979), seasonal and climate data, with a wide range of data connectors and data formats, providing a wealth of information through an easy to use API.
Wind Power Forecasts
The design and technical evolution of wind power turbines has transformed in recent years, impacting requirements for weather forecasts to take into account the latest changes, such as increasing dimensions (hub height + rotor diameter). Plus, it has also become crucial to correctly represent wind properties (speed and direction) in altitudes beyond 100m’s.
Meteomatics has been able to respond to changes in industry, by acquiring premium weather data sources and integrating wind turbine specifications (powercurves) to calculate a very accurate wind energy forecast.
Meteomatics is also a leading provider of portfolio specific wind energy forecasts. By combining customers historical metre data and several premium weather models, the power forecasts are optimised down to a single turbine or to aggregations. We can also take into account real-time measurements, differing availabilities, maintenance schedules, night reductions and additional specific site requirements.
