New wind index for German North Sea coast to allow better planning
Researchers at Fraunhofer IWES have created a new wind index for Germany’s North Sea coast that shows the deviation of wind energy output from the long-term average, the institute announced at the Hannover Messe, Germany’s largest industry trade fair. The index, called FROENIX, will help wind farm operators recognize the deviations from the expected output precisely, identify and fix reasons for any output drop, and therefore increase profitability, the institute said.
