What is WAsP?
WAsP is a PC program for predicting wind climates, wind resources and power productions from wind turbines and wind farms. The predictions are based on wind data measured at stations in the same region. The program includes a complex terrain flow model, a roughness change model and a model for sheltering obstacles.
WAsP has become the wind power industry-standard PC-software for wind resource assessment and siting of wind turbines and wind farms.There are currently more than 4000 users in over 110 countries and territories, who use WAsP for all steps from analysis of wind and terrain effects to estimation of wind farm production.
WAsP is developed and distributed by DTU Wind Energy, a department of DTU, Denmark (former Wind Energy Division of Risø DTU).

Looking for a certified WAsP user?
A WAsP certificate assures that the holder has reached a certain level in using WAsP. There are now 201 certified WAsP users in 27 different countries – in Europe, North- and South America, Pakistan, India, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South Africa.
