Masdar publishes UAE wind atlas

28th January 2015

The launch of the UAE Wind Atlas by Masdar provides public access to complex UAE wind maps. This allows wind energy investment decisions based on hard data.

At the World Future Energy Summit 2015, the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (link is external) has announced the launch of the UAE Wind Atlas. At a spatial resolution of 500 m, the wind atlas aims to accurately characterize the UAE’s wind resources and to ultimately support investments in wind energy projects. It is publicly available and has been integrated into the Global Atlas for Renewable Energ (link is external)y platform of the International Renewable Energy Agency (link is external) (Irena).
