Abstract

Offshore Wind Atlases based on the meso-scale model WRF are presented and validated in this paper. The Work has been part of the EU-funded project NORSEWIND (Northern Seas Wind Index Database). Validations show that annual average wind speeds and wind-roses at hub-height (100m) are well represented by the model, while the model accuracy is poorer for the Weibull-k factor.
