Short summary
In offshore wind, it is important to have an accurate wind resource assessment. Measure–correlate–predict (MCP) is a statistical method used in the assessment of the wind resource at a candidate site. Being a statistical method, it is subject to uncertainty, resulting in an uncertainty in the power output from the wind farm. This study involves the use of wind data from the island of Malta and uses a hypothetical wind farm to establish the best MCP methodology for the wind resource assessment.
