Mexico sees below average wind speeds in 2015

These departures from mean wind speed highlight the importance of gaining a deep understanding of how much seasonal and year-to-year variability is possible at a location prior to major investment, says the company. This is critical as Mexico eyes significant wind energy expansion, aiming to quadruple its wind capacity and add as much as 10 GW in a three-year period. Furthermore, as wind power nears grid parity in Mexico, due to high energy prices and falling turbine costs, keeping wind cost-competitive with conventional forms of generation will be crucial to the success of the market. Managing the long-term performance of sites is an essential part of bringing down the levelized cost of wind energy generation. Vaisala claims that, since wind speeds directly affect wind production, an increase or decrease of 5% can have a 5-15% impact on power generation. The company belie...
