While wind is one of the fastest growing forms of electric power generation, it is also one of the most difficult to predict, making it a key factor in driving congestion and price volatility in many regional power markets. We partner with The Weather Company, an IBM Business, to provide the most comprehensive ISO-level wind power forecasts available.
We combine The Weather Company's cutting-edge weather models and accurate predictions of key meteorological parameters with our state-of-the-art wind power model to give you transparency into wind-driven congestion and its impact on prices.
