Department of Energy - Wind Forecasting Improvement Project in Complex Terrain

Synopsis:
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is aimed at improving the physical understanding of atmospheric processes which directly impact the wind industry forecasts and incorporate the new understanding into the foundational weather forecasting models. The awardee, in partnership with Department of Energy (DOE), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and a Balancing Authority (BA), will conduct a field campaign in an area of complex terrain to assess how physical processes alter wind speeds at hub heights. From this research, the team will work to develop physical modeling schemes or atmospheric theories that can be incorporated in foundational weather models to improve wind forecasting.

Deadlines:

  • REQUIRED Concept Papers: May 5, 2014
  • Full Applications: Jun. 5, 2014
