UL Solutions’ complimentary global wind and solar anomaly maps

UL Solutions’ Wind and Solar Trends bulletins depict deviations in global wind and solar resources from the historical norm on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. If you are responsible for power production reporting, these complimentary maps can help you quickly assess how wind or solar resource variability impacted your operating assets’ performance over the previous reporting period.

The maps in the Wind and Solar Trends bulletins are derived using  ERA5, a current global climate reanalysis dataset. We calculate anomalies as a percent deviation from the 1995-2019 mean speed at 100 meters (m) above ground level (wind) or mean global horizontal irradiance (solar) for the relevant calendar period.
