GLOBAL Renewable Energy Resources

Wind Energy

Availability of standardized evaluations of the wind energy potential

Availability of standardized evaluations  of the wind energy potential europe/ africa/ asia/ oceania

Availability of standardized evaluations  of the wind energy potential america

Wind energy potential can not easily be shown in simple overwiew maps. The following maps indicate the countries for which wind energy evaluations are available. These have been carried out by means of a standardized method developped by the danish Risø Laboratory.

world wind map

Note: This map was prepared by the US-DOE in 1985 using wind data compiled in 1980.  We now know that much of the data was based on meteorological station data that underestimated wind resources because of poor exposure and inadequate maintenance of the wind speed sensors (anemometers). Many areas shown as Class 1 actually have more wind resources than indicated.  Please use this map with caution.
