Whiffle, a Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) spin-off, has developed technology for highly accurate, localised weather forecasting. Thanks to a €3 million capital injection from impact investors Energiiq and Shift Invest, the company will now be able to expand and grow.
Following developments at Delft University of Technology over many years, Whiffle was founded by Harmen Jonker and Remco Verzijlbergh in 2015. Whiffle runs the calculations of its weather model on graphic processing units (GPUs), allowing local turbulence and underlying processes and conditions in the atmosphere to be captured in greater detail. Optimised by artificial intelligence and machine learning, this weather model is based on Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Although the technology can be used in many sectors, Whiffle is currently focusing on the renewable energy market.
