Energy Yield Assessment

The assessment of wind resources energy yield and losses serves as the basis for planning, maturing and financing the wind projects.

We offer

Calculation of the energy yield assessment of the wind farm based on accepted guidelines, such as MEASNET and IEC 61400-1 ed. 2 and ed. 3, for wind suitability that includes:

  • Evaluation of the wind conditions in the area of interest for better turbine suitability
  • Long term wind correction based on relevant satellite and meso scale data
  • Gross energy yield based on the wind conditions and power production characteristics or the wind turbines
  • Computation fluid dynamics (CFD) for estimating wake effects at complex sites
  • Estimation of wake loss and windfarm blockage loss as well as availability loss, electrical loss, environment loss, curtailment loss and systematic operational losses
  • Estimation of energy yield and uncertainty analysis predicted yield (P50, P75, P90 and other Pxx)
