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 optimization 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

Packages API Our recommended solution to integrate weather data in your application

meteoblue offers numerous weather variables which are grouped into history and forecast packages. Specific packages for wind energy are available in CSV and JSON formats.

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:

Images 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.

Meteo & Climate services

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.
