Accurately predicting wind resources for wind energy development on- and off-shore is a major challenge due to limited measurements, the complexity of boundary-layer flow and the range of time scales involved. Predictions are required for from hourly to decadal. The session will focus on prediction of wind climates including vertical profile extrapolation from measurement height to turbine hub-height, turbine wake interactions, resource prediction at offshore and coastal wind farms, turbulence, flow in complex terrain, short-term forecasting and the application of new measurement techniques e.g. sodar and satellites. Research results based on modelling and/or measurements are welcome.
This session shall contribute to a focus within the ERE division that
links the energy issue to geophysical resources and that also attempts
to investigate its causal relations to global change. Options to
harmonise energy demand and climate stabilisation shall be assessed in
the light of risk and uncertainty.
