Wind Resource Mapping
Correct estimation of the energy available in the wind can make or break the economics of wind plant development. Wind mapping and validation techniques developed at the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) along with collaborations with U.S. companies have produced high-resolution maps of the United States that provide wind plant developers with accurate estimates of the wind resource potential. NREL has been approached by DOE and foreign governments to produce wind resource estimates for various countries (Bangladesh, Botswana, Pakistan, Nepal, Philippines so far).
