NYISO wind forecasts to help “green the grid”

Per a NYISO press release, “The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) will incorporate a centralized wind forecasting system to better accommodate wind power in New York’s bulk electricity grid. The wind-forecasting system … is one of many steps being taken by the NYISO to recognize and incorporate the unique characteristics and variable nature of wind power in dispatching resources to economically serve the State’s electric load.” The system is scheduled to be implemented in the summer of 2008.

NYISO indicates that there are currently nearly 500 megawatts of wind generating capacity in commercial operation in New York State, and that almost 7,000 megawatts of proposed wind generation projects are proceeding through the grid interconnection process administered by the NYISO.
