What we can do for you
Weather data to minimize risk and help grow your business
Wind power and renewables
The connection between renewabale power generation and weather is as simple as it is crucial: great weather conditions will produce great yields. Great weather data helps predicting yields and managing dips or spikes, as well as scheduling maintenance service tasks.

More applications for weather data:
For damages to your property caused by environmental factors it is often not easy to get insurance claims approved. Recorded weather data from nearby weather stations can provide the missing bit of evidence.
By analyzing prevailing seasonal and overall weather patterns as recorded by Windfinder, promising locations as well as natural risks can be identified early, giving you a good estimate of the future success of your wind power project.
Historical weather data and statistics can help with making crucial decisions during the planning stages of a project. Just as important, though, is the availability of near real time weather reports and short term forecasts to manage weather related risks to material and staff.
Turn a risks into opportunities: weather events and trends can help increase yields and reduce costs. Know when to fertilize with minimal runoff, and use favorable wind conditions for more effective pest management.
Weather data is easy to access and process, making it suitable for all kinds of science projects in schools, universities and governmental institutions. Also, with climate change accelerating, assessing historical weather data recordings and understanding changes in weather patterns over time is more crucial than ever.
