Development of Eastern Regional Wind Resource and Wind Plant Output Datasets

December 31, 2009

A primary task of the Eastern Wind Integration and Transmission Study is to develop a dataset of three years of modeled time-series wind speed and power output that can be used to evaluate the power system impacts and transmission associated with increasing wind penetration to 20% and 30% on most of the eastern interconnect.

AWS-Truewind created the Eastern Dataset with oversight and assistance from NREL. AWS-Truewind has completed this final report describing the overall project detailing the modeling and inputs (PDF 1.9 MB) Download Adobe Reader. Read more about the Eastern Wind Dataset.
