Wind Powering America Publishes 30-Meter Wind Resource Maps

Link: Wind Powering America Publishes 30-Meter Wind Resource Maps

Date: 5/22/2012

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Wind Program and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory published 30-meter (m) height, high-resolution wind resource maps for the United States and all 50 states. The maps are a key piece to understanding a state's wind resource potential from a small wind project development and policy perspective and represent the first modern national map of the resource for small wind turbine deployment available to the public. Wind resource maps are now available on the Wind Powering America website for small (30-m height), community (50-m height), utility-scale land-based (80-m height), and utility-scale offshore (90-m height) wind power assessments. The 30-m height maps were made available in collaboration with AWS Truepower.
