  • Abstract The ability of wind power to reliably contribute energy to electricity networks is directly related to the characteristics of the wind resource. An analysis of the characteristics of the wind power resource of the United Kingdom has been carried out, based on modelling of hourly observed wind speed data from 66 onshore weather recording sites for the period 1970–2003. Patterns of wind power availability are presented, with the data demonstrating that the output from large-scale wind… CONTINUE READING
