We present a new MCP method to estimate the wind resource at a target site based on a short set of concurrent measurements from that site and a reference site for which also a long historical wind speed record is available. The method derives from time-series analysis methods used in nonlinear dynamical systems and uses Singular Systems Analysis to define the optimum correlation between the target and reference site, which is then used to build the model used for estimating the target site resource. The performance of this method is then applied to a set of Met.Office date from Scotland and bench-marked a basic linear-regression MCP.
