Wind profiles have been corrected for HR

The Croatian wind forecast has been too low for a while. We corrected the error and refitted the model.

The wind production in HR represented about 2.6% of the total net electricity generation in 2014, according to Eurostat. For 2016 MKonline’s forecast for the installed wind capacity in HR is at 523MW. The installed capacity development for the next years can be found on MKonline under Wind Power>Capacity Assumptions.

As of today we have also extended our forecasts for fundamentals and prices to 32 days ahead for HR, RS and BG. All forecasts are delivered with full ensemble. If you do not subscribe to apply for a free trial here.

For the countries for which actual generation data is available, you can check the model performance under the Track Record pages.  These pages will be published as well for HR as soon as the actual wind and solar data is available.
