Renewable energy consultants, AWS Truepower, have released their Wind Trends Bulletin for the second quarter of 2017. Quarterly wind performance maps for Q2 2017 show deviations in the wind resource from average Q2 conditions in every region of the world.
The quarterly Wind Trends Bulletin is based on a custom combination of three reanalysis datasets: ERA-Interim, MERRA, and CFSR. The use of all three allows for rapid, reliable updates of global wind conditions.
In the second quarter of 2017, winds were above-normal relative to the long-term, second quarter norm (1988-2014) across wind producing areas of South America. Winds were near-normal or below-normal across many key areas of all other regions.
