Bavaria is the largest and southern most state of Germany. Bavaria includes Alpine areas and
smooth low-lands between 100m above sea level to Zugspitze, the highest German
mountain with 2962 m.
The Wind Atlas of Bavaria includes maps showing wind speed at 10m, 100m, 130m
and 160m and maps showing the wind potential of a wind turbine. The detailed
maps are based on three-dimensional, meteorological models with a
resolution of 200 m only. Moreover, the models re-constructed the wind
conditions of the last 30 years.
For the first time ever, the Wind Atlas of Bavaria includes a wind data base
which shows the annual wind index for the years 1981 until 2012.
The atlas is available to the public via the official web-pages of the state
Energie Atlas Bayern
