  • The Netherlands is one of the best countries in the world to live in.

  • It has a strong economy and some of the world's best DJs were born here.

  • There is only one downside

  • It rains 145 days a year.

  • At Google, we solved this problem by repurposing Holland's old windmills.

  • Using them not to capture wind, but to generate it.

  • To pull this off, we needed to build a better understanding of the weather.

  • We used Google Cloud Platform to predict how clouds will behave.

  • We then connected all 1170 windmills in Holland to prevent bad weather from happening.

  • Let's take it for a spin.

  • Machine Learning enables all the mills to collaborate.

  • Of course, we need some rain now and then.

  • With Google Wind, we can also decide when and where it rains.

  • So Google Wind is able to keep clear skies any season.

  • (Speaking Dutch) People, sun, sun and more sun. Just like the rest of the year.

  • I am proud to announce that from April 1st, we are able to guarantee clear skies for everyone.

  • [Google Wind: Sun in Holland, starting April 1st]
