Prediction Of Waves, Wakes and Offshore Wind

Objective

Currently, a good number of research projects is underway on the European and national level in the fields of short-term forecasting of wind power, offshore wind and wave resource prediction, and offshore wakes in large wind farms. The purpose of this Acti on is to co-ordinate the activities in these related fields, to spread the knowledge gained from these projects among the partners and colleagues, and to start the work on some roadmaps for the future. Therefore, the leaders of research projects are assumi ng the function of a multiplier towards the larger research and user community. Additionally, in the fields of short-term forecasting and offshore energy resource, Expert Groups will be formed to act as the central focus point for external stakeholders (eg the EU commission). The liaison with other groups will also include groups outside of Europe. To facilitate the spread of knowledge, a number of workshops is planned, being smaller and more focused on their topics than the usual conferences. In order to i nclude more researchers from the new and accession states, they can get travel grants paid from the project.One issue hampering the progress in our fields is the difficulty of getting access to good data. In most cases, data on offshore wind or power is st rictly confidential, and also data on onshore wind power, especially in conjunction with numerical weather predictions, is not easy to come by. One example of a good testing procedure comes from the Anemos project, where in all 6 test cases were defined, t o be run by all involved institutes. This idea is taken to the next level with the set-up of two Virtual Laboratories, one for offshore wake modelling, the other one for short-term forecasting. In the end, this Coordination Action will also support prepara tion of next actions such as a Network of Excellence or an Integrated Project, connecting many additional partners within the European Research Area.
