What is it about?



This paper discusses the challenge of "wind droughts," which are prolonged periods of low wind speeds, and their impact on electricity systems relying heavily on wind power. Using weather reanalysis data, the authors analyzed the global distribution and trends in wind droughts and identified regions that are most suitable for wind power generation based on their low seasonal and weather variability.
