Vaisala has launched a new Vaisala Energy Budget Outlook service to provide independent assessment of the impact of weather on wind portfolio performance. The launch comes amid increased demand from wind energy operators for tools to more accurately forecast revenue, and for the ability to adjust these forecasts based on recent wind performance. Typically, pre-construction estimates of wind speeds and actual energy production figures are used to forecast a site or portfolio's energy production (energy budget). This new service provides a range of information on how more recent anomalies in wind speeds will affect an individual project or a wider portfolio. In doing so, it allows wind energy operators to more accurately set project budgets for the coming months.
