Infographic: A New Global Wind Energy Atlas

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.

Trees, Water & People

Trees, Water & People (TWP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox in 1998, in Fort Collins, Colorado with the mission to improve people’s lives by helping communities to protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. Nationally, we are actively involved with helping to improve the lives of Native American families living on the reservations of the Great Plains. In these areas, where the winters are extremely long and harsh, Native Americans commonly spend more than half of their income on exorbitant utility bills. Together with our reservation-based partner, Lakota Solar Enterprises, we have built 800 economic solar heating systems and trained more than 180 tribal members in residential and facility-scale renewable energy applications.
