Reliable climate research services
Understanding long term risks using climatology studies is crucial to a wide range of businesses. MeteoGroup offers global, high-resolution wind resource assessment services for any onshore or offshore wind farm installation.
MeteoGroup delivers a range of wind climatology studies which are customised to fit your project. Our studies are of the highest quality as they are based on the most accurate historical datasets available and our post-processing techniques not only add value to the studies but enable us to deliver the results to you in the manner most appropriate to your needs.
From site-specific time series information to longterm regional wind resource grids, MeteoGroup can package a climate study into a format that will suit the needs of your project.
What does MeteoGroup offer?
Wind resource grids
MeteoGroup provides historical wind maps at various resolutions to cover your array of geographic locations at any hub height. Studies can go back 10, 20 or even 50 years.
Output can be supplied as a time series or in a range of frequency distribution analyses.
Output can be displayed as average, monthly, seasonal or yearly resolutions.
Incorporating client data
Looking ahead, our ongoing consultancy service updates wind climatologies as campaigns (such as met mast and LIDAR) get underway.
Bespoke delivery format
Post-processing options are available to suit your needs - from standard CSV output to wind roses, frequency distribution bins, seasonal or geographic variations.
How does it work behind the scenes?
MeteoGroup uses the most comprehensive datasets available, created through the application of ECMWF data, as well as our own in-house MeteoGroup incorporating WRF® reanalysis data and observations.
At MeteoGroup we work with our clients to develop bespoke services. For renewables projects, we use our in-house range of weather data and, where available, client information from LIDAR, SCADA and met masts to ensure that our forecasts are of the highest quality.
High resolution wave data is also available for offshore projects. If you would like more detail on MeteoGroup's research models and techniques please don't hesitate to contact us.
