    This paper describes the "Database on Wind Characteristics", a world wide web hosted database of wind time series suitable for wind turbine designers. The paper marks the conclusion of the initialising Joule project and presents the database as a functioning and useful tool for the wind turbine community. An overview of the current contents of the database is given. The browser based search system is described and examples of wind time series found using the search system are presented. The paper concludes by placing the database in context, briefly mentioning associated projects and describing how the database will continue to function as an IEA annex.
