AWS Truewind has announced that it has completed the first high resolution wind resource map of the contiguous United States.
Covering a land area of over 9 million square kilometres the US wind map is the largest high resolution wind resource map available to date (second only to India, also available from AWS Truewind). The core objective of the map is to further support the growth of the US wind industry by providing a reliable and user friendly means by which to identify attractive sites for wind project development across the nation. The 200 meter grid cell resolution map was completed using AWS Truewind's proprietary MesoMap. The new national map is scheduled for widespread release June 1, 2008 when it will be launched with AWS Truewind's webbased wind prospecting application windNavigator.
