The new Finnish Wind Atlas is an important tool for estimation of the regional and local wind energy potential in Finland. The Wind Atlas contains average monthly and annual values of wind speed (m/s), potential power production (MWh) calculated for three different wind turbines (1 MW, 3 MW and 5 MW) at heights from 50 m to 400 m above sea or ground level distributed into 30 degree wind direction sectors. The detailed results are presented on interactive maps which also allow data for selected areas to be downloaded.
