AWS Truepower Leads Study for US Department of Energy to Enhance Short-Term Wind Energy Forecasting

Renewable Energy Access In the first phase of the field and modeling program, AWS Truepower’s team will provide real-time sub-hourly data to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) from four sonic detection and ranging units (sodar), one wind profiling radar, and one 200-meter tower at the Texas Tech University Reese Center,” stated Jeff Freedman, Senior Research Scientist at AWS Truepower and Principal Investigator for the project.

AWS Truepower, LLC, an international leader in renewable energy consulting and information services, today announced the deployment of remote sensing equipment to capture the spatial and temporal characteristics of atmospheric phenomena within the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) territory as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) sponsored Wind Forecasting Improvement Project (WFIP). The program is part of a multi-year, multimillion dollar project funded by the US DOE which aims to improve the state-of-the-art in short-term wind forecasting.
