Wind Powering America, an initiative for the promotion of wind energy launched by the Department of Energy (DOE), published the new map of wind resources in the United States.
The map, publicly available on the WPA website, includes detailed data on wind conditions in the whole of the USA, gathered at an altitude of 50 and 80 metres from the ground and with a resolution of 2,5 kilometrers. Additionally, it reports offshore resources to be found about 90 km away from the shore, with data collected at an altitude of 90 metres and a resolution of 200 metres.
Values are updated as of March 2010, this being the first time national data are brought up to date since 1993.
Wondering is such data is available for India too? I am aware of wind map, but not sure if there is a resource available that goes into this level of detail
