Wind energy

  • Improve trading or scheduling and reduce imbalance penalties with meteoblue wind forecasts
  • Local wind forecast data on different height levels for precise wind power calculations
  • Historical data of many different sources for wind park site assessment
  • Scheduling of maintenance operation for higher electricity yield
  • Estimate the risk of wind turbine icing based on 30-years of hourly weather data
  • Statistical optimisation of forecasts based on observational data
  • High resolution weather models assure accuracy in complex terrains
  • Numerous variables for any specific site worldwide
  • Weather API for easy integration into your system

With globally consistent, high quality weather data, you can ensure optimal scheduling, yield estimation and maximum yields.

meteoblue offers thousands of images from different categories, that can easily be integrated into your SCADA software. These images can be individually customised as they are available in many languages for any location on Earth.

Weather APIs

Forecast & History APIs > jsondata.png

Forecast & History APIs Our recommended solution to integrate weather data in your application

meteoblue offers numerous weather variables as forecast packages and through the History API. Forecast data relevant for wind energy are available in CSV and JSON formats, historical data can be accessed through easy to integrate calls to our high-speed API.

Maps API > webmaps_freezing-level-height_lightbox.png

Maps API Fully customizable integration of our stunning weather maps

With the Maps API you can get access to innovative weather maps that cover the whole world with a wide range of weather data overlays, including temperature, precipitation, pressure and many more. Furthermore, the Maps plugin offers stunning animations for wind, satellite images and weather radar.

For wind energy application we recommend the following layers:

Image API Ready to use Weather and Climate diagrams

meteoblue offers a wide range of different meteograms, that give an overview of the general or specific weather of the next days. These are especially useful to optimise the timing of maintenance activities.

For the wind energy sector we recommend the following meteograms:

Dataset API > agro-site-assessment_lightbox.png

Dataset API The big data API for complex analyses of historical weather data

The Dataset API gives access to the world largest weather database with more than 50 different datasets and hundreds of variables. Climate predictions and site comparisons based on typical and extreme years provide help in securing long term investments.

Renewable Energy MOS > simulation-quality_one_column_of_three.jpg

Renewable Energy MOS Plant specific forecast trained on your measurements

MOS (Model output statistics) is the technique of post-processing the output from numerical weather forecast models using statistics of local historical power measurements. The MOS service substantially improves the accuracy of the forecast data for wind speed and power predictions. Site specific conditions like local wind fields, wake and other local effects are accurately forecasted when wind energy MOS is implemented.


Year comparison > yearcomparisonprev.png

Year comparison

Visualise several seasons with accumulated precipitation or growing degree days (GDD) in one graph. See how a wet or rather hot season may affect plant development, calculate a heating sum to predict how much energy is required during winters or estimate weather conditions for a single week to plan events.

Wind rose > windroseprev.png

Wind rose

Wind speed frequencies for wind power generation are calculated for any coordinates on land or sea. Wind roses classify wind directions and speeds, e.g. to further evaluate potential wind park sites and improve power generation efficiency.

Histogram > histogramprev.png


history+ includes online analysis tools for frequency patterns. Temperature, precipitation and wind frequencies are visualised in a histogram and help to better understand occurance of conditions such as frost or intense precipitation.

Risk assessment > riskassessmentprev.png

Risk assessment

The risk assessment tool provides an analysis of differentxw events (e.g. frost, drought or heat) over the last 40 years. By comparing different years, you can observe risk levels of specific events over time.
