  • Team Visit to Mount Lucas Windfarm

        As part of a recent ESIPP team away day, we visited Mount Lucas wind farm in Co. Offaly which is part of Bord na Móna’s wind farm portfolio. We received a thorough and interesting talk from Nick Norris about the planning, construction and operation of the wind farm. The wind farm sits on 1,100 hectares […]

    Article Title: Application of numerical weather prediction in wind power forecasting: Assessment of the diurnal cycle This paper investigated the performance of different NWP models at forecasting the diurnal pattern of wind speeds at hub height in Germany. Analysis of data from German TSOs found that large biases tend to occur in the early morning. Output […]

  • EMS2017: Variations in wind-solar correlations across multiple datasets

    At EMS2017 in DCU, Dublin in September 2017 I presented a poster titled: Variations in wind-solar correlations across multiple datasets. This was part of the Energy Meteorology session (OSA2.6).  This examined the accuracy of 2 reanalysis datasets  (ERA-Interim and MERRA2) at replicating the correlation relationship between 10m wind speed and incoming shortwave radiation (SW). It was […]

  • Gridded Meteorological Datasets

    A document summarising gridded datasets which could be used as part of our research has been produced.  This considers both atmospheric reanalysis datasets and gridded climate datasets.   Information regarding the resolution, temporal coverage and unique features of the datasets are given. A reanalysis is a dataset generated using weather observations and a modified forecast model to […]
