IRENA and DTU Launch World’s Most Detailed Wind Resource Data

Global Wind Atlas provides accurate wind resource data down to the kilometre, boosting support for global wind energy development

The most detailed data and statistics on global wind energy potential are now available online, thanks to a free resource launched today by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Technical University of Denmark. The Global Wind Atlas provides wind resource data at one-kilometre resolution. Prior to this release, global wind data was only publically available at 10-kilometre resolution or poorer, which resulted in underestimations, increased risk and increased costs for wind energy planners.
