  • Predicting real windfarm performance: interim results of UL’s ongoing backcast study for European projects

    8 June, 16:30 – 17:30

    Michael C. Brower, PhD, Vice President

    Accurate pre-construction energy production estimates are vital for maintaining confidence in financial assessments of prospective wind projects. While uncertainty is always present, and it is normal to observe errors at individual projects, it is important that the average error, or bias, of pre-construction estimates for a representative sample of projects remain within an acceptable margin from zero. UL regularly verifies the accuracy of its energy production estimation methods against actual plant performance and assesses the causes of any discrepancies observed; the result is called a “backcast study”. Interim results from the most recent such study for European projects, which is ongoing, will be presented, with discussion of implications for UL’s energy-estimation methods.
  • Evolutions of UL’s software & data for energy yield assessment

    10 June, 16:30 – 17:30

    Santiago Pares, Business Development Manager – Iberia & Middle East

    Need for an affordable preliminary energy assessment, an optimization of your microgrids or a simulation of the blockage effect ? Join UL’s team to learn about the new solutions and latest developments available for wind engineers.

Climate Scale – Supporter

Climate Scale provides high resolution climate data and information to assess current climate trends and future climate change impacts for a large range of applications, including the wind industry.

Powered by Vortex modelling technology, the platform used by Climate Scale extends its innovative business model to climate change applications. Our high-resolution model uses CMIP climate model projections under the same emission scenarios analysed by the IPCC, to drive a robust atmospheric down-scaling modelling chain. Climate Scale offers access to high fidelity future climate trend and variability information at an enhanced resolution information in user-friendly formats, even to those with no familiarity with the complexity of climate modelling data. Indeed, it is not trivial to work with data from climate change models.

Our team will help you recognize the context of a changing climate in your application as well as dealing with the inherent uncertainty of future simulations. Climate Scale has been developed with the support of the European Commission’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S). Please do get in touch with us during the workshop and visit our website at climatescale.com for more information.
