Albany, N.Y.-based AWS Truewind LLC has announced that its eWind forecasting system is now providing wind power forecasts for over 14,000 MW of installed capacity throughout North America.

This milestone positions AWS Truewind and the eWind system as the most widely used forecasting service on the continent, according to the company, and it is has the capacity to accommodate the wind power industry's anticipated growth for the next decade.

"With clients in the Texas, California and New York markets - which all expect tremendous growth in the next few years - we consciously expanded our forecasting operations to include the necessary infrastructure and personnel to facilitate this growth," says Ken Pennock, forecasting business manager at AWS Truewind.

The eWind system can be leveraged as a research tool to develop forecasts that are optimized to predict infrequent yet significant occurrences. It is currently supporting the AWS Truewind team of experts in advanced research topics like observational targeting, which determines optimal locations for off-site meteorological sensors that yield maximum short-term forecast accuracy improvements.

The eWind system consists of a physics-based atmospheric models, an adaptive statistics models and an automated delivery system.
