Short summary
Here we give a basic form for uncertainty in mean wind speed predicted at one site via measurements taken at another site due to uncertainty in surface roughness when using industry-standard European Wind Atlas (e.g., WAsP) method. We also provide an approximate power-curve form and method to further estimate uncertainty in turbine energy production; this is also useful in AEP estimates. Some implications are also discussed, e.g., prediction over forest or with mesoscale model output.
