Wind Integration Datasets
The datasets below provide energy professionals with a consistent set of wind profiles for the United States.
The Eastern and Western Wind Datasets provide 10-minute time-series wind data for 2004, 2005, and 2006. These datasets were designed to help energy professionals perform wind integration studies and estimate power production from hypothetical wind plants. For the Eastern dataset, more than 1,326 simulated wind plant data points are available across the eastern United States. For the Western dataset, more than 30,000 data points are available across the western United States.
The WIND Toolkit is an update and expansion of the Eastern and Western Wind Datasets, and is intended to support the next generation of integration studies. The WIND Toolkit includes meteorological conditions and turbine power for more than 126,000 sites in the continental United States for the years 2007–2013.
