“Matt is one of the most highly regarded experts in the industry, and he brings a wealth of practical experience that our clients will benefit from immediately,” said Dr. Pascal Storck, 3TIER’s chief operating officer. “He has a passion for the systematic reduction of uncertainty, which aligns perfectly with 3TIER’s commitment to helping our clients reduce and manage risk.”
While at EDP Renewables, Mr. Hendrickson worked closely with 3TIER as a client. He was a driving force behind the development of 3TIER’s Portfolio Climate Variability Analysis, an automated service that statistically corrects long-term weather model data to on-going observational network data. He also conducted an extensive validation study of 3TIER weather model-derived data and proprietary correction process, called model output statistics (MOS), documenting significant advantages of it over the traditional measure correlate predict (MCP) method using classical ground based reference data. His findings were presented at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Wind Assessment Workshop in late 2010.
Mr. Hendrickson will be based in Seattle, supporting 3TIER clients’ project feasibility and financial due diligence efforts around the world.
