Whiffle ShellWhiffle, a provider in high resolution weather forecasting, agreed with Shell on a two-year joint development agreement and to deliver Shell licenses of Whiffle’s  weather model called GRASP (GPU-resident Atmospheric Simulation Platform). 
 
Whiffle’s technology involves running a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), allowing the user to perform ultra high-resolution meteorological studies. GRASP is suitable for complex sites where the wind flow is difficult to predict, such as large wind farms that cope with significant blockage and wake effects or other locations where high turbulence is to be expected. By taking on GRASP as a new modeling tool, Shell aims to improve their modeling capabilities for commercial wind and solar energy projects.
