Renewable energy consultants, UL (formerly AWS Truepower) have released their Wind Trends Bulletin for May 2018. Monthly wind performance maps for May show deviations in the wind resource from average conditions for the month in every region of the world.
The monthly Wind Trends Bulletin is based on a custom combination of three re-analysis datasets: ERA-Interim, MERRA, and CFSR. The use of all three allows for rapid, reliable updates of global wind conditions.
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.
