"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.

We also provide access to maps available from the Asia Alternative Energy Program (ASTAE) and the Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA). The SWERA Link includes solar maps as well as the wind maps, GIS data, interactive maps, and country reports."
