I work on improving KNMI’s wind measurements and wind climate, mainly for offshore wind energy. I am a former (maritime) weather forecaster and involved in advisory work on e.g. coastal defense. I also chair the wind group. Wind group meetings are held every 2 months. They started in 2013, initially just for KNMI staff, but the group got bigger and more international. Now (2022) the wind group has about 60 members from universities, research institutes and industry. Every meeting hosts 3 wind related presentations, preferably about unfinished work because our aim is to share, discuss and give feedback. If you do wind related work and are interested to join: just get in touch. Students are also very welcome!
