One of the ways of reducing the effects of Climate Change is to rely on renewable energy sources. Their intermittent nature makes necessary to obtain a mid-long term accurate forecasting. Wind Energy prediction is based on the ability to forecast wind speed. This has been a problem approached using different methods based on the statistical properties of the wind time series.
Wind Time series are non-linear and non-stationary, making their forecasting very challenging. Deep neural networks have shown their success recently for problems involving sequences with non-linear behavior. In this work, we perform experiments comparing the capability of different neural network architectures for multi-step forecasting obtaining a 12 hours ahead prediction using data from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's WIND dataset
We thank the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for the use of their wind energy datasets.
