NREL-Philippine Wind Farm Analysis and Site Selection Analysis
"The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has been working in partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in an ongoing process to quantify the Philippine wind energy potential and foster wind farm development. Work to date includes completion of the NREL wind atlas for the Philippines as well as training courses and consultant seminars. A review of the work completed to date indicates that additional activities are necessary to provide the Philippines with the tools necessary to identify the best wind energy development opportunities. In addition, there is a need to review government policies that affect wind energy development and to update previous work documenting the policy changes needed to promote wind energy development."
