Dr Gregor Giebel:

On the Benefits of Distributed Generation of 
Wind Energy in Europe

Here are the pdf-files of my thesis.

The Zephyr homepage, including the authoritative list of short-term forecasting references

My latest project: POW'WOW

My main two literature overviews are the capacity credit and the State-of-the-Art (2003) in short-term forecasting.

A talk I like is the Wind Power Advocacy published e.g. in Brazil.
