Wind potential and energy yield forecast

EWS 2017-25a 875 575
Accredited services

The determination and evaluation of site-specific wind potential and energy yield is based on following guidelines and recommendations:

  • FGW TR6 in connection with MEASNET: Evaluation of site specific wind conditions and
  • IEC EN 61400-12-1

The EWS Consulting expertise answers questions about the energy yield of a wind energy project.

The results help the future operator to decide whether it is worth implementing the wind energy project. Furthermore, they provide a calculation basis for financing and for the insurance of wind turbines.

The EWS Consulting Experts...

  • have experience in forecasting energy yields at sites with very high hub heights, in complex terrain and in forest sites
  • increase accuracy and minimize the risk in wind resource and energy yield assessments
  • provide a reliable and realistic uncertainty analysis
  • calculate yield reductions based on (inhouse)-expert knowledge
  • deliver the basis for decision-making for financial institutes and investors

Before the energy yield assessment is performed, experts visit the planned site to ensure that the best possible theoretical model is chosen for the calculations. The quality of the energy yield assessment depends on the input data, the data-recording method and the experience of the wind expert. Detailed calculations about expected technical losses and the analysis of hourly energy production and curtailment scenarios, optimize communication between wind farm operator and energy suppliers.
