New European Wind Atlas

Basic Information

Network NEWA
Aim of the joint call The NEWA initiative aims to leverage the long term European wind energy research potential, which will ultimately translate into attaining the demanding European ambitions for wind energy generation in the future. This goal can be broken down into several technological and scientific objectives that need to be taken into account in the proposal: 1) Development of the methodologies for the improvement and use of the new advanced models for wind farm development, wind turbine design conditions, spatial planning and policy promotion 2) Development of a high-value data bank from a series of wind measurement campaigns 3) Verification and estimation of uncertainty 4) Creation and publication of a European WindAtlas (database on wind data, environmental and other constrains). The Atlas shall cover all EU member States (MS) as well as MS exclusive economic zones, both onshore and offshore, with the exclusion of any overseas department or territory.
