Description:
Abstract:
Annual average offshore wind speed for Hawaii at a 90 meter height.
Purpose:
Provide information on the wind resource development potential for Hawaii.
Supplemental_Information:
The annual offshore wind speed estimates were produced by AWS Truepower for an onshore wind mapping project using their MesoMap system and historical weather data. The wind speeds data have been interpolated to a 90-m height and extrapolated to 50 nautical miles by NREL. The raster dataset had a spatial 200 m resolution with a projection of UTM zone 4, datum WGS 84. The shapefile was generated from the raster dataset and then projected to Geographic Decimal Degrees, datum WGS 84.
