Wind energy indexes

An essential tool to monitor production capacity

To monitor the power output of an operating wind farm, it is important to be able to ensure that the variations in production of the wind farm is consistent with variations of the actual wind resource. As such, our energy indexes are essential tools for assets managers. Each month, they provide an overview of the operation of the wind farms from a power output point of view and allow operators to concentrate on potential underperforming assets.

For nearly 10 years, Eoltech has developed expertise in the design of energy indexes dedicated to operators and portfolio managers. This indicator, which has been validated on more than 170 operating wind farms, is now a recognised benchmark for power production monitoring.

Upon request, the delivery of our energy indexes can be associated with custom technical support services dedicated to ensuring that your use and interpretation of the indexes are optimal.

What is an energy index ?

An energy index is a tool that enables you to put your wind farm production into perspective with the actual wind resource available at the time. IREC-Index, developed inhouse by Eoltech, corresponds to the ratio between the wind energy available over a given time period and the average resource in that same time period (average in that reference period over the last 10 years).

How does it work ?

As an example, an energy index equal to 95% for a specific year means that, on average, in the region considered, production should be 5% below what can be expected between this year and the average of the last 10 years.
