Wind power (W/m2)
The Global Wind Atlas is a free, web-based application developed to help policymakers, planners, and investors identify high-wind areas for wind power generation. It also serves as a useful tool for governments to get a better understanding of their wind resource potential at provincial and local levels. Wind power density is a measure of the wind resources. This map shows the mean wind power density (W/m2) at 10 m heigth. Higher mean wind power densities indicate a better wind resource potential.
