In 2008, the EC programme NORSEWInD kicked-off to answer three key barriers to industry as presented by EWEA in a report issued in 2006. these were:
1.Maximise availability of information in the public domain
2.Resource mapping covering the Irish, Baltic and North Seas;
3.Better understanding of key technologies such as LiDAR, SoDAR and Satellite Based on state of the art techniques in remote sensing and mesoscale modelling, the NORSEWInD team have worked to create an open source free to use wind atlas covering the North, Irish and Baltic seas, based on a substantial database of offshore wind data . This paper presents the output of 4 years of work at a budget of 7 million euros, and the joint effort of 17 partners.
