The lack of wind data on sites of interest is certainly the main problem. Wind measurements are available only in few places. Solutions that require the ad hoc installation of wind measurement instruments, in order to determine the producibility of the site, require long period analysis and are usually very expensive.
A viable solution can be achieved using mathematical models to calculate the wind in the target location. Fluidodinamic modelling requires data on near sites, and also these data are not always available. Complete meteorological model running for a single site as alternative is not economically sustainable.
The great opportunities of the market, and the wide potential users base made feasible for Planetek Italia to make the conspicuous investments in terms of research and development to define a high resolution model, run it on large areas and offer to the market the resulted information as a service to several users on a request base.
