The UK offshore sector benefits from globally unique, publicly available data sources, including those provided by The Crown Estate Marine Data Exchange.
K2 Management has leveraged these data sets to calculate long-term wind farm yield using both pre-construction and operational methods, across 91 % of the UK offshore installed capacity.
Through this approach, K2 Management has both measured and demonstrably improved state of the art offshore yield prediction.
Refinements to best practice methods presented here provide unbiased, low uncertainty yield prediction across a wide variety of offshore projects.
This study demonstrates the current accuracy of yield prediction across the UK offshore market, and outlines the steps required to reduce yield risk in offshore investment.
