Managing directors

Dr. Heinz-Theo MengelkampDr. Heinz Theo Mengelkamp (CEO) studied meteorology and has long year research experience at GKSS research center Geesthacht in the fields of wind energy, hydrology and atmospheric mesoscale model simulation. In 1990 he founded the anemos Gesellschaft für Umweltmeteorologie mbH. Heinz-Theo Mengelkamp is certified consulting meteorologist of the German and American Meteorological Societies. Between 2001 and 2005 he was deputy chairperson of the advisory committee of wind consultants at the German Wind Energy Association. At present, he is chairperson of the working group "Wind potential" within the FGW (Association for Wind Energy and other Renewable Energies) for the development of the Technical Guideline TR6. He is also German delegate in the IEC working group for the development of the guideline IEC 61400-15 (wind farm site assessment). Dr. Mengelkamp is visiting lecturer at the University Flensburg for "Meteorology for wind energy applications".

Dipl. geographer Lasse BlankeLasse Blanke is employed at the anemos GmbH since 2009 as head of site assessment. Since 2015 he is authorized officer and co-responsible for research and development projects. Furthermore, he is in charge of due diligence processes with investors and project developers. For many years, Mr. Blanke has been regularly participating in the meetings of the German Wind Energy Association. Additionally, he is chairperson of different working groups within this association and participates in the working group "Wind potential" within the FGW (Association for Wind Energy and other Renewable Energies) for the development of the Technical Guideline TR6.

Certification

The anemos GmbH is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 in agreement with the accreditation certificate D-PL-17580-01-00.

VERIMA - Verification of Wind and Market Value Atlas for Wind Power

Until recent, the market value atlas depended on the anemos wind atlas, which was based on MERRA-1 reanalysis data (MODERN-ERA RETROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS FOR RESEARCH AND APPLICATIONS) by NASA, a global data set of atmospheric parameters. At the end of 2015, the calculation of the MERRA-1 data was terminated and replaced with MERRA-2 data. As a result, the anemos wind atlas and the market value atlas had to be completely recalculated in order to ensure consistency over the entire time period.

A verification of the market value atlas and an adaptation of the wind atlas to observational data is essential in order to prove their accuracy and to increase the acceptance of these products as well as to extend the number of users. The accuracy of the wind and market value atlas is determined by developing and adopting new modelling methods and comparing the atlas data with wind measurements and energy yield data from wind turbines.

Site Energy Yield

The aim of the project is to provide a new frame for the determination of the site energy yield after 5 years for onshore wind turbines which are compensated according to the EEG 2017. A guideline for determining the site quality before and after commissioning is developed.

Onshore Wind Energy – Development of a Roadmap for Creating a Wind Atlas

Within this project, the existing methods for creating wind atlases and wind maps in Germany were critically reviewed. The wind maps of individual federal states were compared to observational data.

The aim was to develop preferably consistent, objective and project independent evaluation criteria and approaches for the classification of wind energy quality at specific sites. Furthermore, a roadmap for creating wind atlases should be developed.

Wind Profile 300 - Validation of two numerical simulation model chains for simulating the vertical wind profiles up to 300 m height above ground

Within this project, numerical simulation models are combined to a model chain which allows for a realistic simulation of the vertical wind profile up to great heights. The models cover the mesoscale (several 10 km) as well as the microscale (several 10 m) and allow for a detailed simulation of the turbulent wind field in the surroundings of planned wind turbines. The new model approaches are evaluated and compared to today's "standard model" WAsP.
