The new service produces an hourly wind power production forecast for user defined wind turbines anywhere in Fennoscandia or the Baltics.
The forecast, which is updated four times per day and extends to 66 hours ahead, is based on the joint Nordic MetCoOp weather forecasting system with a horizontal resolution of 2.5 kilometers. The service provides a personalized interface where one or multiple wind turbines can be defined.
New features, for instance an automated data export tool, will be added to the interface after the summer period. User feedback is very welcome. A similar service for solar electricity production is also available (http://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/news/529088997)

Finnish Meteorological Institute's open data pilot service is implemented under the EE-VaGe project. EE-VaGe (Enabling exploitation of variable and uncertain weather and power generation information) is a key project by the Academy of Finland. The aim of Academy's key project funding scheme is to strengthen collaboration between the research field (universities and research institutes) and end-users of research (business and industry), and promote more effective use of research results in the society.
