Renewable energy consultants, AWS Truepower have released their latest Wind Trends Bulletin for the month of September, and their Q3 report. Quarterly wind performance maps for Q3 2016 show deviations in the wind resource from average conditions during that time in every region of the world.
In the third quarter of 2016, winds were above normal relative to the long-term, third-quarter norm (1988-2014) across the western United States, as well as portions of northern Europe and southern Asia. Winds were below normal across much of South America, Europe, and maritime Southeast Asia.
Knowing the performance of the wind can help wind developers understand the performance of their wind plant. AWS Truepower can help identify areas of improvement, reduce downtime, and maximize a wind plant’s energy production.
