The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) has introduced system and operating changes to better utilize New York's existing wind resources and pave the way for continued growth of economical, emission-free and renewable power resources in the state.

The NYISO contracted with Colonie, N.Y.-based AWS Truewind to provide the central operator with wind power forecasts for each wind power project, based on meteorological data and historical operating characteristics of the wind power projects. The data is fed directly into the NYISO operational systems that determine the balance of load and generation.

"A primary issue in the industry has been with forecasting the availability and timing of wind-powered generation," says Steve Whitley, NYISO president and CEO. "As the grid operator, we constantly adjust all generation supplies to meet the changing demand for electricity in real time. If the anticipated level of wind generation changes, then other adjustments must be made on the system to accommodate those changes."
