    Renewables: Share data on wind energy; Giving researchers access to information on turbine performance would allow wind farms to be optimized through data mining…

    Andrew Kusiak, 4 January 2016 (Nature)

    “The energy industry has long met demand by varying the rate at which it consumes fuel…But the wind cannot be turned up or down. Smart software can make wind farms more efficient and responsive. Computer models can predict wind speed and control the number and capacity of turbines in operation to meet energy demand…Optimizing renewables requires data: on device performance, energy output and weather predictions, seconds to days in advance. Vast quantities of information are collected by turbine manufacturers, operators and utility companies…[but] prohibitively difficult for anyone outside to access…The lack of data sharing in the renewable-energy industry is hindering technical progress and squandering opportunities for improving the efficiency of energy markets…There is money to be made…Controlling wind turbines with data-driven software could, models show, increase energy production by at least 10%, and gains of 14–16% are possible…” click here for more
