The KNMI-Hydra website provides valuable
data for those working with wind energy. For example frequency tables
and records of wind speed, or roughness maps of the Netherlands. Questions
about the information on this page can be addressed to Job
Verkaik. However, questions about suitable sites for placing wind energy
converters and their economical benefits can not be answered by KNMI. Please
direct your questions to Milieu Centraal.
Milieu Centraal offers practical and reliable information to the public on environment-friendly living in everyday life.
Extensive information on renewable energy is available at www.duurzame-energie.nl.
WAsP is a software program for
predicting wind climate and power production of wind turbines. The predictions
are based on wind data measured at stations in the same region. The
program includes a complex terrain flow model, a roughness and a sheltering
obstacle model. Roughness maps suitable for WAsP and preprocessed wind data files can be obtained
from this site.
