Wind speed climatology

English: Global maps of average wind speed help researchers determine where to develop wind energy. Wind turbines (high-tech windmills) can generate power in places far from power plants and without an electricity grid—but planners need to know where there is sufficient wind for the turbines to operate efficiently. A team at NASA’s Langley Research Center developed these maps, and maps of solar insolation, and provide them free of charge. Private companies are using these data to design, build, and market new technologies for harnessing this energy.
Deutsch: Weltkarten mit Informationen über die durchschnittliche Windgeschwindigkeit helfen Forschern herauszufinden, wo die Erzeugung von Windenergie weiterentwickelt werden sollte. Windturbinen können Energie an von Kraftwerken weit entfernten Orten und ohne Stromnetz erzeugen, aber Planer müssen wissen, wo ausreichend Wind zur Verfügung steht, um sie effizient betreiben zu können. Ein Team des NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) erstellte neben diesen Karten auch weitere zur weltweiten Sonneneinstrahlung und stellt diese kostenlos zur Verfügung. Private Unternehmen nutzen diese Daten, um neue Technologien zur Nutzung dieser Energien zu entwickeln, zu bauen und zu vertreiben.
