NexSys supported the International Energy Agency (IEA) Wind Task 51 workshop, which took place on 12 and 13 September 2022 at University College Dublin. NexSys co-Principal Investigator Associate Professor Vikram Pakrashi hosted the workshop and meeting.

This event gathered experts from industry and academia to discuss the forecasting for the Weather Driven Energy System.


This workshop explored developments in the area, including

– details of new products and new developments in weather forecasting for renewable

– data for forecasting, including which parts of the data can be open and how data markets could work.

Because many forecasting models are data-driven, it was discussed that data is developing into a new commodity for both meteorological and power forecasts.


Task 51, under the IEA Implementing Agreement for Co-operation in the Research, Development, and Deployment of Wind Energy Systems (IEA Wind) focuses on improving the value of renewable energy forecasts.
