The WENDI Gateway is an integrated system for the archival, discovery, access, integration, and delivery of wind energy-related data and information.



 



NOTE

The WENDI Gateway has been discontinued due to an absence of funding. Oak Ridge National Laboratory has placed a message on the WENDI Gateway URL notifying users of this, and is redirecting users to OpenEI as a resource to access the data. The WENDI data has been relegated to the OpenEI Map of Wind Farms. Users can visit the Wikipedia article referenced[2] for information and historical reference to the WENDI Gateway. This is current as of February 13, 2013.

Overview

"The WENDI Gateway is an integrated system for the archival, discovery, access, integration, and delivery of wind energy-related data and information. This site has been established to support the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind & Water Power Program and is intended to serve the information needs of a broad range of stakeholders in our nation's efforts to increase wind energy's contribution to U.S. electricity demand. Wind energy stakeholders and data users may include - but are not limited to - wind plant developers and constructors, electric utility companies, wind energy modelers/forecasters, environmental scientists, ecologists, policy makers, local and civic organizations, academia, educators, and the general public.

Since it is highly likely that any given wind energy-related question or issue requires data integrated from multiple sources, this site has been designed as a virtual data repository, providing a gateway to information from a variety of data centers and web sites, including those of federal and state governments, academia, private industry, and wind energy-related trade associations. The tools and interfaces on this site have been designed to facilitate the discovery, visualization, subsetting, and downloading of this information."
