Space-Time Models for Wind Speed Modelling

Introduction here.

Stefano Castruccio (MATHS) and Paola Crippa (CEG) are part of an international team that has been awarded over a million dollars by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology for a project entitled "Space-Time Models for Wind Speed Modelling".

The project is a joint partnership between Newcastle University, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in the United States to help Saudi Arabia develop a wind energy portfolio. The project will apply space-time statistical methods to multiple climate models to accurately assess the uncertainty in wind intensity under future greenhouse gases scenarios. The project will provide information to the Saudi Arabian government on how to locate wind farms to maximize their energy output, and upon successful delivery will be instrumental in establishing partnerships with local wind companies to help build the farms.
