The Met Office and WindSim have formed a partnership to work on more accurate wind resource assessments and wind power forecasts to meet demand for improved short term power forecasting and longer term power yield analysis.
The U. K. government has given its nod for three offshore wind farms located off the coast of Yorkshire. Project One will have a combined capacity of up to 1.2 GW.
With just over 4 GW now online, mostly in the last four years, the UK comfortably leads the world in offshore wind deployment, but with the switch to the new Contracts for Difference (CfD) regime; will offshore wind continue this success story?
