Abstract: The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is an index measure of the pressure gradient between Iceland and Portugal, with the pressure gradient affecting the strength and track of storms across the North Atlantic and into Europe. This has implications for renewable generation, which are becoming increasingly important with higher renewable penetrations. To explore the impact of the NAO on renewables a hindcast of wave, onshore and offshore wind generation in Scotland was created for the most recent climate normal period (1981–2010).
