International Wind Resource Maps

NREL is helping to develop high-resolution projections of wind resources worldwide. This allows for more accurate siting of wind turbines and has led to the recognition of higher class winds in areas where none were thought to exist.

This page provides access to NREL-developed wind resource maps and atlases for several countries. NREL’s wind mapping projects have been supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Agency for International Development, and United Nations International Programme.


List of Offshore Wind Farms

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about offshore wind farms. For onshore wind farms, see List of onshore wind farms. For more complete lists, see Lists of offshore wind farms by country.

This page lists the top 25 offshore wind farms that are currently operational, rated by nameplate capacity.
Also listed are the ten largest offshore wind farms which are currently under construction, the ten largest proposed, and offshore wind farms with notability other than size.

As of January 2011, the Thanet Offshore Wind Project in United Kingdom is the largest offshore wind farm in the world at 300 MW, followed by Horns Rev II (209 MW) in Denmark. Greater Gabbard (504 MW) is the largest project under construction. These projects will be dwarfed by subsequent wind farms that are in the pipeline, including Dogger Bank at 9,000 MW, Norfolk Bank (7,200 MW), and Irish Sea (4,200 MW).
