  • Characterization of the near surface wind speed distribution at global scale: ERA-Interim reanalysis and ECMWF seasonal forecasting system 4 

    Marcos, Raül; González-Riviriego, Nube; Torralba, Verónica; Soret, Albert; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (Springer, 2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The present developments in 10 m wind seasonal forecast products have lead to a growth in the number of studies analysing different aspects of both its predictability and applicability. However, there is still a lack of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Estimation of future emission scenarios for analysing the impact of traffic mobility on a large Mediterranean conurbation in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area (Spain) 

    Soret, Albert; Jiménez Guerrero, Pedro; Andrés, David; Cárdenas, Francisco; Rueda, Salvador; Baldasano Recio, José María (2013-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Emission modelling permits us to quantitatively assess the effects of emission abatement strategies. In urban areas, such strategies are designed mainly to reduce the emissions from the on–road traffic sector. This work ...
  • Evaluation of traffic emission models coupled with a microscopic traffic simulator and on-road measure 

    Rey, Daniel R.; Soret, Albert; Guevara, Marc; Linares, Mari Paz (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2018-04-24)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This study aims to compare and contrast the emission results of two instantaneous traffic emission models coupled with a microscopic traffic simulator and COPERT. These will be evaluated with the observed results of on-road ...
  • 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 J.; 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 ...
  • Seasonal forecasts of wind power generation 

    Lledó, Llorenc; Torralba, Verónica; Soret, Albert; Ramon, Jaume; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (Elsevier, 2019-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The energy sector is highly dependent on climate variability for electricity generation, maintenance activities and demand. In recent years, a few climate services have appeared that provide tailored information for the ...
  • 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 J. (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 ...
  • Summer drought predictability over Europe: empirical versus dynamical forecasts 

    Turco, Marco; Ceglar, Andrej; Prodhomme, Chloé; Soret, Albert; Toreti, Andrea; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (IOP Publishing, 2017-07-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Seasonal climate forecasts could be an important planning tool for farmers, government and insurance companies that can lead to better and timely management of seasonal climate risks. However, climate seasonal forecasts ...
  • Testing simple models for street wind conditions in Barcelona 

    Benavides, Jaime; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Soret, Albert; Guevara, Marc (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2017-05-04)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Street wind speed and direction drive models to estimate air quality levels at street scale. In this study, simple models are combined with a mesoscale meteorological model to provide wind conditions at street level. Then, ...
  • 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 J. (2016-09-12)
