Meteosim is a technological consulting company that — through highly reliable 
weather forecasts — provides solutions to sectors and industries whose 
activities are weather-sensitive.

Meteosim’s main asset is the application of scientific knowledge, which 
provides valuable solutions to our clients on the basis of research and 
development with mesoscale and microscale weather forecast models.

The experience and recognition developed through the production of short-term 
forecasts for very localized areas,long-term seasonal forecasts, marine 
forecasts, historical analysis of past
weather conditions, pollution dispersion models / air quality, risk maps, water 
etc., allow Meteosim to work in different sectors.

Meteosim was created as a spin-off company in 2003 through a partnership 
between the members of the Department of Astronomy and Meteorology of the 
University of Barcelona (Spain) and the American company Meso Inc., (Troy, New 
York), world-renowned in the field of Meteorology.

In 2007, in order to reinforce Meteosim’s position within the wind sector, the 
company Meteosim Truewind was founded to perform a joint venture with the 
American company AWS Truewind. The success of the collaboration resulted in the 
merger of both companies in 2011 to establish AWS Truepower, world leader in 
the wind sector with offices in the United States, Spain, Mexico and India.

This diversification allowed Meteosim to direct their research, development and 
trading resources towards other weather-sensitive markets such as Air Quality, 
Communication Media, etc.
