Wind Resource Map: Mexico

Type: 
Publication
Objective: 

This is on-shore wind resource map for rural power applications in Mexico. The map can be used to aid in appropriate siting of wind power installations. Please note that the wind speed classes are taken at 30 m (100 feet [ft]), instead of the usual 10 m (33 ft). Each wind power class should span two power densities. For example, Wind Power Class = 3 represents the Wind Power Density range between 150 watt (W) per square meter (m2) and 200 W/m2. The offset cells in the first column on of the table on this website attempt to illustrate this concept.

European Wind Atlas: Onshore

Type: 
Publication

This is a European on-shore wind resources at 50 meters of altitude map, developed by Riso National Laboratory in 1989. The map shows the so-called generalised wind climate over Europe, also sometimes referred to as the regional wind climate or simply the wind atlas. In such a map, the influences of local topography have been removed and only the variations on the large scale are shown.

Energy Efficiency Standards for Refrigerators in Brazil: A Methodology for Impact Evaluation

Type: 
Publication
Publication date: 
Thursday, July 1, 2010

This paper presents a methodology for assessing the impacts of the Brazilian minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for cold appliances. It uses a bottom-up approach to estimate residential end-use consumption and evaluate the energy saving potential for refrigerators.
