Infographic: A New Global Wind Energy Atlas

Infographic | May 13, 2021

To maximize the return of investment, the design of a wind turbine is determined on the 50-year return period of sustained wind speed. Stable and consistent wind speed is one of the major determining factors when considering turbine design and wind turbine farm placement. Cornell researchers Sara C. Pryor, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Rebecca J. Barthelmie, professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, recently released a new global wind atlas—a digital compendium of sites around the world with extreme wind speeds.
