Average Modelled Wind Speeds (m/s) for Victoria

The wind resource has been mapped on a 3 km x 3 km grid across Victoria. Average annual wind speeds have been modelled using the WindScape wind resource mapping tool that was developed by the Wind Energy Research Unit of CSIRO Land and Water in 2002. WindScape uses atmospheric data, and regional topography to model the wind resource at 65 metres above ground level to a resolution of 3 kilometres. The resolution of the modelled wind resource means that it does not incorporate the effects of local landscape features smaller than 3 kilometres in size, like small hills and ridges. This dataset is derived from the same data used to create the overview map of the Victorian wind atlas published by the Sustainable Energy Authority Victoria, c2003
