Project Ukko

You are here

Probabilistic climate predictions come with a new set of challenges for end users: information is often untailored, hard to understand and apply in a decision-making context. One of the objectives of the prototype is to develop a user-friendly interface to show seasonal predictions tailored to users expectations and needs. Project Ukko is the product of the close collaboration between cutting-edge science and big data graphic designers. The aim is to showcase a visualizing tool to provide new perspectives on how to integrate seasonal predictions into sector-relevant formats.

The visualization interface provides global information of the wind speed predictions of the RESILIENCE prototype. The operational wind speed prediction for winter 2015/2016 (December 2015, January and February 2016) is available on-line.

The official launch of the webpage will be in January 2016 when the information will be open without password protection.

About

RESILIENCE aims to strengthen the efficiency and security of wind power supply within energy networks, by providing robust information of the future variability in wind power resources based on probabilistic climate predictions.
