Wind Series

Our wind series have been evalutated with WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) numerical weather prediction model , initalized with NCEP long term high resolution analisys. 

Data coverage has a resolution of 10km for the whole European area and 3km for the Central and South of Italy and cover the last 10 years (2003-2012).  Our wind series have been tested for maximum accuracy and may be considered a very reliable dataset.


Main features:


  • Resolution of 10km for Europe and 3km for Central and South Italy
  • 10 years of data (2003-2012)
  • Hourly data
  • Variables: wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation
