DTU Wind Energy has released the Global Wind Atlas (GWA) version 3.1. The Global Wind Atlas version 3.1 includes several new features and improvements.
All visual layers on the Global Wind Atlas have become user-scaleable and the new bathymetry layer makes it possible to assess the water depth for offshore wind turbines and wind farms. In the “countries and regions” section, a link has been included to the results of the World Bank Group’s analysis of offshore wind technical potential for emerging markets around the world. These maps show the estimated technical potential for fixed and floating offshore wind in terms of installed power capacity, within 200 kilometres of the shoreline. The Global Wind Atlas is developed, owned and operated by DTU, Technical University of Denmark.
