Description

Project Ukko presents a novel way to visualize seasonal wind predictions, which could play a big role in wind energy production in the future. It shows how fascinating things can happen when cutting-edge research and design come together. A key challenge has been how to deal with the uncertainty of wind predictions. Developed using climate forecast data from Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, Project Ukko’s “ray casting” model is a fresh approach. On the eve of this year’s FutureEverything festival, Click talks to artist and founder of the festival Drew Hemment and to Carlo Buontempo from Project Ukko.
