Software Data Measures Wind Power Potential

November 11, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The search for optimal high-wind locations is critical to the efficiency of wind turbines and the cost of wind power. ENSR International’s Research and Development (R&D) Program said they have developed the capability to assess the wind energy potential at any site within the US and its offshore waters. In a key part of this project, ENSR scientists processed advanced meteorological data from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration into a format that can be used with WindFarm software. Using this application, ENSR scientists streamline the air modeling process and accurately simulate the wind energy conditions for a specified geographical location, thereby identifying the most promising sites for wind power development, according to the company.
