  • Predictable Wind Power

    Maximizing value by peering into the future Wind power is variable, but predictable! Let’s not beat around the bush: wind power is variable.  Output power of a wind turbine varies with the wind speed and every location will have some degree of wind speed variations around an average value. Even on a windy night in Vanuatu, wind speed and thus ...
