We provide support for developers in any phase of a project purchase or life cycle:

 

If you own property apt for housing a renewable energy facility and seek turnkey service, EREDA is the supplier you’re looking for.

You may choose to:

  • Be the project developer, in which case we would do all the design and development work for you.
  • Take active part in the project as one if its investors
  • Provide the land for the project, benefitting from revenues pursuant to the agreement reached.

Data Analysis

We develop our own software to analyse the information from weather stations and from the turbines themselves:

Site identification, selection and characterisation
Site assessment in more than 7000 MW:

  • Survey campaign design
  • Site pre-selection studies for area and project development.

Characterisation:

  • Supply and installation of meteorological towers
  • Meteorological station management
  • Data analysis
  • Energy audits using site-adapted models: WAsP and Windsim
  • EREDA’s WAsP certification is a guarantee of its expertise and experience in wind resource studies.
  • EREDA is a certified WAsP user.

Some projects of this kind developed by EREDA are:

Regional and Mesoscale wind maps

EREDA offers meso and microscale wind maps at custom size and resolution (up to 100m).

Mean wind speed and rose, yearly and daily curves and also energy production can be obtained for any point inside area of interest. Moreover Ereda offers hystorical virtual mast time series. This is a useful tool to reduce the uncertainty of the energy production estimate by means of MCP analysis.

The virtual mast time series are 15 years long and are centered at the real mast position with a 3 km resolution. Maps and virtual masts are obtained downscaling historical global meteorological data to the desired resolution by means of the WRF (Weather Research and Forecast) model. Numerical simulations are performed with a supercomputer cluster.

An example of a project of this kind performed by EREDA is:  Elaboration of the national Wind and Solar atlas of Angola for The Ministry of Energy and Water of Angola.
