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.
This product is made available through PDF reports, GIS formatted maps, and data files transferred via secure FTP.
Meteorological data utilized for reconciliation services are derived from Vaisala 3TIER Services continually updated, NWP derived datasets. Anomaly and probability maps for recent periods are compared against long-term mean conditions over the period 1969-2008.
Historical power production data or met tower observations are used to correct the model simulations in a process known as model output statistics or MOS. This method significantly reduces error, removes bias, and improves the certainty of the analysis. Vaisala's proprietary MOS technique has shown proven accuracy in both internal and independent validation studies.
