Wind on Roads
High-resolution wind forecasts at road level.
Wind resistance is the major driver of energy consumption at highway-speeds.
Atmospheric winds are important to consider.
For example, a light breeze of 10 kph results in an excess consumption of about 10%.
Heavy crosswinds are a concern for safety for trucks and cars.
Strong crosswinds are well resolved using Wind on Roads' high spatial resolution.
Our wind forecasts are currently available for the road network in Europe.
