Wind Power Forecasting Group Secures New Contracts

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Behind the scenes at every commercial wind power facility is often a forecasting service that helps smooth out and coordinate the intermittent nature of wind power’s contribution to the electrical grid. After signing a new round of contracts, Washington-based 3TIER Environmental Forecast Group says they will soon be forecasting for more than 2,000 MW of wind energy across the U.S., representing nearly one-third of the total installed wind energy capacity in the country. The new projects 3TIER Group will be forecasting for range in region from the Pacific Northwest to the upper Midwest, the Northeast and into the South. Forecasts that extend from minutes to months into the future can be used for such critical operational concerns as asset allocation, transmission scheduling and long-range planning.
