Utility-Sponsored Research

WeatherFlow partnerships with various utilities in the southeast U.S. have been major drivers in the development of the WeatherFlow Hurricane Mesonet. Due to past problems with hurricane-based outages and a perceived increase in future risk, in 2006 the Florida Public Service Commission directed investor-owned utilities to establish a plan for increasing collaborative research on mitigating hurricane impacts on the electric utility infrastructure, including data gathering and analysis of hurricane winds in Florida.

WeatherFlow Utility Sponsored ResearchWeatherFlow’s Hurricane Network provides a superb, cost-effective resource for these and related efforts, allowing utilities from Florida and other states to obtain valuable data for a fraction of the investment required for a dedicated project. Moreover, collaboration with WeatherFlow and its partners provides access to a greatly improved body of knowledge, allowing them to determine the most efficient and cost-effective means to strengthen their infrastructure.
