Maps of average wind speed

The arithmetic mean wind speed (m/s) is calculated for each average month and the average year from +3 h and +6 h forecasts produced by the numerical weather prediction model AROME. The following maps give the wind speed for each grid point representing a horizontal resolution of 2.5 x 2.5 km2. Each grid square thus has, or may have, areas with wind speed higher or lower than the average. The map colours are given for 2000 MWh intervals.

The wind speed maps are produced for three altitudes above sea level or above the average height of the ground sabove sea level, calculated for each 2.5 x 2.5 km grid.

The map for a selected month or whole year, at a selected height, can be chosen below.
