This chapter gives an overview over past and present attempts to predict wind power for single turbines, wind, farms or for whole regions, for a few minutes up to a few days ahead. It is based on a survey and report (Giebel et al., 2011) initiated in the frame of the European project ANEMOS, which brought together many groups from Europe involved in the field with long experience in short-term forecasting. It was then continued in the frame of the follow-up European projects SafeWind and ANEMOS.plus, which concentrated respectively on the forecasting of extreme events and the best possible integration of the forecasts in the work flow of end users.
