Wind Performance Reconciliation puts recent and future wind performance in context so you understand the risks and implications of variability at potential or existing projects across your portfolio. Vaisala 3TIER Services enables you to optimize and diversify your assets and our quarterly forecasts help you structure long-term hedges for energy and capacity transactions.
Based On a 30+ Year Perspective
It takes more than 10-15 years of climatology to fully understand normal variability and reoccurring climate anomalies. That is why Vaisala 3TIER Services includes 30+ years of site-specific, statistically corrected data to deliver the long-term context necessary to distinguish normal cyclical variability and non-standard climate anomalies that impact wind power production.
Reports Customized To Your Portfolio
Each quarter Vaisala 3TIER Services delivers a report discussing the climate and weather patterns that affected your project sites during the past 3 months, as well as site-specific data showing how the past quarter compares to the long-term mean. GIS-formatted anomaly maps are included to show where wind speeds were above or below their 30+ year average value both in terms of an anomaly ratio and probability of exceedance. Vaisala also delivers the underlying time series data at all of your project sites.
In addition to a detailed analysis of the previous quarter, Vaisala 3TIER Services also provides a 3-month forecast for the upcoming quarter based on current conditions and climate trends. This forecast allows you to plan for anomalies in advance and perform integrated resource analysis. A 12-month outlook can also be delivered upon request.
