The display shows the predicted amount of renewable energy (graph right) generated by a wind farm (map left) based on current and forecast weather conditions. The close relationship between the yellow lines (forecast energy) and blue line (actual energy), illustrates the high accuracy of the system (over 90%). Through its 'Green Horizon' initiative, IBM is applying its expertise in weather forecasting to air pollution management, using predictive analytics to create visual maps showing the source and dispersion of pollutants across Chinese cities.
