Vaisala has partnered with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to provide access to its global renewable energy resource data. The new download feature in IRENA's Global Atlas platform will allow users to integrate Vaisala's wind and solar datasets into their own software and modeling programs.
Vaisala's data can be downloaded from the Vaisala map in the Global Atlas in GeoTIFF format in portions of 4MB. Vaisala's global wind dataset provides average annual wind speeds at a height of 80 meters and a resolution of 5 km, based on ten years of hourly data from simulations and validated against ground measurements.
