During the last four years, researchers from all over Europe have been working on creating a New European Wind Atlas. The results are being presented in Brussels today.

Today, Thursday June 27th, the New European Wind Atlas is being launched at a WindEurope event in Brussels.  

Large cross-border project

A mix of 30 partners from academia and industry in eight different countries have been collaborating across Europe on creating the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA) for the last four years.

The researchers have been developing and validating new methodologies for the assessment of wind conditions. A central  aim of the wind atlas has been to develop online maps to be used as a standard for site assessment. 

Jakob Mann, professor at DTU Wind Energy and responsible for the project explains:

“NEWA is the largest and most detailed data sets for validation and assessment of wind conditions.”

NEWA will be available for anyone to use - visit the website.
