Wind resource mapping of Sweden - version 2007

The wind resource mapping shown here is the final version within the project ’Mapping of the wind potential in Sweden’ (Swedish Energy Agency project nr 20484-1). The average winds are estimated using results from the higher-order closure 'MIUU-model' run with 1 km horizontal resolution. Maps may be downloaded showing the annual average wind speed at 49 m, 72 m and 103 m above the zero-plane displacement. This is commonly estimated to be about 3/4 of the height of the vegetation, that is having a 20 m high forest, 15 m should be added to get height above ground. For the case with a 20 m high forest we get that the results at for example the height 72 m is valid at 72+15=87 m above ground. The maps showing annual average wind speed are available for 27 areas covering the whole of Sweden.

Links below points to zipped text files containing the wind resource data at every km2 in tabular förm.

The four columns give: column data
1 RT90 coordinate y (west-east in m)
2 RT90 coordinare x (south-north in m)
3 Height above sea level (m)
4 Annual average wind speed (m/s)

NaNs (Not-a-Number) are given where the 1 km data does not cover the whole offshore economical zone of Sweden.
