MeteoPole Zephy-Science has received funding from the European Union under the scope of Horizon 2020 to develop software solutions for next-generation smart wind farms.
The company will use the EU funding for developing new features and applications for ZephyCloud, their cloud-based simulation platform. These developments would be dedicated to:
- Power Forecasting: the goal being to deliver reliable short-term forecasts to facilitate energy integration into the grid.
- Performance Optimisation: providing actionable insights for maximizing the wind farm performance and proposing smart wind turbine control.
- Extended Turbine Lifetime: recommending actions to reduce turbine loads and predicting maintenance needs or potential failures to reduce downtimes.
