The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has been working on the ERA-Interim project in order to prepare for a new atmospheric reanalysis to replace ERA-40. This new reanalysis will extend back to the early part of the twentieth century, with a lot of new features. Note that the paper on the previous reanalysis performed by ECMWF may well be the most-cited ever article in Atmospheric Sciences. Potential applications for renewable energy assessment and studies are substantial(!)
