Global Weather Corporation Delivers Cost-Saving Wind Forecast Service to Xcel Energy Inc
Sep 19 12
Global Weather Corporation announced completion of the first full-year operational deployment of its WindWX(SM) energy forecast service with Xcel Energy Inc. This follows a multi-year R&D collaboration to develop the core technology, involving the nation's number one wind power provider, Xcel Energy, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the world's atmospheric research laboratory. The result is a new global standard for accuracy in wind power forecasting. With WindWX(SM), Xcel Energy estimates that it has saved $17 million, including about $7.8 million in 2011 alone, and has reduced its forecasting error by approximately 28% since 2009. Forecasts for a 168 hour period are provided every 15 minutes for all of Xcel Energy's service territory, which covers the nation's heartland from Minnesota to Colorado to Texas. The WindWX system uses real-time turbine-level operating data and applies sophisticated algorithms to forecast the amount of wind power that will be produced. WindWX forecasts are available world-wide. They are designed to help utilities make decisions about powering down less-efficient power plants when sufficient winds are forecasted, and to optimize allocation of wind resources in the energy market.
