Wind Forces atmospheric simulation technology produces one (1), three (3), five (5), ten (10), twenty (20), and thirty (30)+ years of ‘wind resource assessment data’ at customer specified locations–to cover the entire wind farm–and heights–to maximize wind energy production–by choosing the most optimal and economical wind turbines for the site.
Wind Forces is providing its global customers multiple-year wind resource assessment data in a matter of months. Over the years, Wind Forces wind resource assessment data have been compared with actual site wind measurements at exact locations/heights and have been proven to be highly accurate.

Wind Forces technology, unlike the other currently available approaches, produces these highly accurate simulation based wind resource assessment data by focusing on the underlying atmospheric processes that affect wind speed and direction in space and time. We collectively call these atmospheric processes “Wind Forces.”
The advantage of Wind Forces approach is that it is enabling all relevant atmospheric processes to form and then take their net effect on wind speed to create site specific wind resource assessment data.
Highly accurate wind resource assessment data are extremely critical in consideration of optimal wind farm design, in maximizing project profitability and longevity, and in minimizing financial risk for the investors.
Ideally, one would want to measure wind at many locations and heights and for 20+ years to obtain this type of wind resource assessment data but such measurement campaign efforts are obviously impractical. There are methods that are being employed to overcome this costly and time consuming requirement for obtaining comprehensive wind resource assessment data but such methods are not addressing the complex atmospheric processes and the role they play in producing highly accurate wind resource assessment data used for long-term energy calculations.
Wind Forces has been making a concerted effort to force a paradigm shift in the collective thinking of the global wind industry–by making the industry think beyond short-term wind measurements to develop the highly crucial ‘wind resource assessment data’ as part of successful wind project development efforts.
Why the underlying atmospheric processes are so important? “Wind Forces” are important because wind does not create itself, nor can it make itself change in space and time. The underlying atmospheric processes are the causal factors that are responsible for the existence of wind and the changes wind undergoes all the time.
