Wind Atlas and Wind Potential Study Austria

Austrian Wind Atlas

Using geo-statistical and numerical modeling, a wind atlas was calculated from the entire federal territory at a resolution of 100 x 100 meters grid area. Based on this, the theoretical maximum mobilizable wind energy potentials at the district level (in terms of installable capacity) were estimated.

The wind atlas was produced as part of the AuWiPot project from 2009 to 2011 and funded by the Climate and Energy Fund.

Development of wind power in Southeast Europe

Wind energy in SE Europe

Wind farm locations in Southeastern Europe and especially in the Balkan region offer excellent conditions for wind energy utilization, but also pose a great challenge for wind farm design and wind turbine technology due to extreme wind speeds, turbulence and wind shear.

In this area of tension, the project “SEEWIND – South-East European Wind Energy Exploitation” was carried out in the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission. The R&D project was coordinated by Energiewerkstatt, had a duration of 90 months and a total budget of € 9.6 million.
