Wind Data & Reports

Our data and maps are derived from simulations of historical atmospheric conditions performed by a numerical weather prediction (NWP) model. The model output is further down-scaled with a micro-scale model accounting for local terrain and surface influences, and adjusted using available high-quality wind measurements. Our approach has been thoroughly validated and uncertainty statics are available. In addition, we also provide Time Series and Wind Resource Grid options using the WRF Model. Technical papers are available.
