Offshore wind potential at Aegean Sea
Tuesday, February 10 2015
Expansion of the Market for EO Based Information Services in Renewable Energy (ResGrow) is a project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA). During phase II of the project (2014- 15), the Department of Wind Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Wind Energy) works together with partners from the wind energy industry in order to develop innovative products based on Earth Observation data and to assess the practical usability of these products.
This report presents results related to lifting of wind maps retrieved from satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) over the Aegean Sea. For this case study DTU Wind Energy collaborates with the Hellenic Wind Energy Association. Preliminary results have been presented to HWEA and their feedback has been incorporated in this final version of the report. In summary, the following updates have been made:
· Overview maps of the 10-m mean wind speed are added with coverage and color scaling similar to HWEA’s own results (not shown).
· Wind resource statistics for the 10-m level, including wind roses, are added for every site.
· Editorial changes are made according to HWEA’s suggestions.
