    • Challenges in the selection of atmospheric circulation patterns for the wind energy sector 

      Torralba, Verónica; Gonzalez-Reviriego, Nube; Cortesi, Nicola; Manrique‐Suñén, Andrea; Lledó, Llorenç; Marcos, Raül; Soret, Albert; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Wiley, 2020-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Abstract Atmospheric circulation patterns that prevail for several consecutive days over a specific region can have consequences for the wind energy sector as they may lead to a reduction of the wind power generation, ...
    • Development of a wind energy climate service based on seasonal climate prediction 

      Torralba, Verónica; Jiménez, Isadora; Lledó, Llorenç; González-Reviriego, Nube; Soret, Albert; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2015-05-05)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Climate predictions tailored to the wind energy sector represent an innovation to better understand the future variability of wind energy resources. In this work an illustration of the downstream impact of the forecasts ...
    • How Skillful are the Multiannual Forecasts of Atlantic Hurricane Activity? 

      Caron, Louis-Philippe; Hermanson, Leon; Dobbin, Alison; Imbers, Jara; Lledó, Llorenç; Vecchi, Gabriel A. (American Meteorological Society, 2018-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      The recent emergence of near-term climate prediction, wherein climate models are initialized with the contemporaneous state of the Earth system and integrated up to 10 years into the future, has prompted the development ...
    • Investigating the Effects of Pacific Sea Surface Temperatures on the Wind Drought of 2015 Over the United States 

      Lledó, Llorenç; Bellprat, Omar; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Soret, Albert (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2018-05-27)
      Article
      Open Access
      During the first quarter of 2015 the United States experienced a widespread and extended episode of low surface wind speeds. This episode had a strong impact on wind power generation. Some wind farms did not generate enough ...
    • Predicting daily mean wind speed in Europe weeks ahead from MJO status 

      Lledó, Llorenç; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (American Meteorological Society, 2020-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      The Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO), a prominent feature of the tropical atmospheric circulation at subseasonal time scales, is known to modulate atmospheric variability in the Euro-Atlantic region. However, current ...
    • Seasonal prediction of Euro-Atlantic teleconnections from multiple systems 

      Lledó, Llorenç; Cionni, Irene; Torralba, Verónica; Bretonnière, Pierre-Antoine; Samsó, Margarida (IOP Publishing, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      Seasonal mean atmospheric circulation in Europe can vary substantially from year to year. This diversity of conditions impacts many socioeconomic sectors. Teleconnection indices can be used to characterize this seasonal ...
    • Sub-seasonal to seasonal climate predictions for wind energy forecasting 

      Soret, Albert; Torralba, Verónica; Cortesi, Nicola; Christel, I.; Palma, Ll.; Manrique-Suñén, A.; Lledó, Llorenç; González-Reviriego, Nube; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (IOP Publishing, 2019-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      Both renewable energy supply and electricity demand are strongly influenced by meteorological conditions and their evolution over time in terms of climate variability and climate change. However, knowledge of power output ...
    • The Tall Tower Dataset: a unique initiative to boost wind energy research 

      Ramón, Jaume; Lledó, Llorenç; Pérez Zanón, Núria; Soret, Albert; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Copernicus Publications, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      A dataset containing quality-controlled wind observations from 222 tall towers has been created. Wind speed and wind direction measurements covering the 1984–2017 period have been collected from existing tall towers around ...
    • Weather regimes as a tool to validate seasonal forecasts 

      Cortesi, Nicola; Lee, Doo Young; Torralba, Verónica; González-Reviriego, Nube; Soret, Albert; Lledó, Llorenç; Bretonnière, Pierre A.; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (2016-09-12)
