November 2021 - Does the measuring mast need to exceed 100m high for hub heights planned up 125m ?

WindEurope Presentation, 24 November 2021, If measuring at hub height remains the main recommendation, above 100 m the interest of measuring systematically at hub height could be in specific situations limited

September 2021 - IREC index: macro indicators for performance monitoring overtime – A case study on 200 windfarms

WindEurope Presentation, 9 September 2021, When the quality of operational data is satisfactory, the production predicted from IREC energy indexes can be associated to an uncertainty level below ±5%

May 2019 - Using wind data from meteorological stations in France for the long-term adjustment

WindEurope Presentation, 25 May 2019 - Why the decrease in the wind resource observed in the Northern part of France might not be attributable to changes in measurement conditions (evolution of vegetation cover, sensor changes…)?

May 2018 - Comparison of wind trends from MERRA-2 data and a multisource wind index (23 regions in Europe)

WindEurope Presentation, 30 May 2018 - Why does the choice of reference sources matters so much?

May 2018 - Evolution of the wind resource over the last 30 to 45 years in 11 European regions (France, Germany and UK)

WindEurope Presentation, 30 May 2018 – Variability analysis and considerations about uncertainty for long term predictions

May 2018 - Going far back in time to analyse the wind resource: can pressure data replace wind data?

WindEurope Presentation, 30 May 2018 – This study loos at the wind resource over a very long period (+30 years) using pressure data instead of wind data

March 2017 - Improving wind resource evaluation in France - Modelled data VS Measured Data

WindEurope resource assessment workshop, 01 March 2017 – This study looks at the influence of the choice of long term sources in France.

May 2015 - REEPEF - Retour d'expérience sur 97 études de potentiel éolien

WindEurope Presentation, 30 May 2015 – The REEPEF project was carried by eoltech and financed by ADEME. With the aim to benchmark pre-construction assessments with effective production data.
