Resource Assessment and Meteorology

Our ambition is to deliver impact by research in meteorological modelling of atmospheric conditions over land and ocean, resulting in understanding, methods and data, relevant at the level of wind turbines, wind farms and the energy system.

Our research focuses on understanding meteorological phenomena affecting wind energy, from turbine site to system level, over terrain and ocean. Multi-scale modelling is the primary approach, validated against measurements. Methods are disseminated to stakeholders via software, datasets, services and publications.
