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

The most detailed data and statistics on global wind energy potential are now available online, thanks to a free resource launched today by IRENA and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). 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.
