Development of a New European Wind Atlas

Development of a New European Wind Atlas

05-07-15

Continuing their successful partnership, Innovayt has helped the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) with the preparation of a successful proposal to the ERA-NET Plus programme.

The wind energy industry is still troubled by many projects showing considerable negative discrepancies between calculated and actually experienced production numbers and operating conditions. The New European Wind Atlas is aimed at reducing these uncertainties, and is structured around three areas of work: Creation and publication of a European wind atlas in electronic form, which will include the underlying data and a new EU wind climate database;  development of dynamical downscaling methodologies and open-source models validated through measurement campaigns; measurement campaigns to validate the model chain used in the wind atlas.

The project will receive grants of approximately EUR 13.0 million and will have the duration of 5 years.
