Global Wind Atlas

The Global Wind Atlas is a free, web-based application developed to help policymakers, planners, and investors identify high-wind areas for wind power generation virtually anywhere in the world, and then perform preliminary calculations.

The Global Wind Atlas facilitates online queries and provides freely downloadable datasets based on the latest input data and modeling methodologies. Users can additionally download high-resolution maps of the wind resource potential, for use in GIS tools, at the global, country, and first-administrative unit (State/Province/etc.) level in the Downloads section. Information on the datasets and methodology used to create the Global Wind Atlas can be found in the About > Datasets and the About > Method sections.

The Global Wind Atlas is developed, owned and operated by DTU Wind and Energy Systems (DTU Wind). The current version of the Global Wind Atlas is the product of a partnership between DTU Wind and the World Bank Group.
