Wind Resource Mapping in the Maldives: Site Installation Reports

The World Bank retained Garrad Hassan America, Inc. ("DNV GL") to provide a validated mesoscale wind atlas for the Maldives, including associated deliverables and wind energy development training courses. During Phase 1 of the project, which has been completed, preliminary mesoscale mapping was carried out covering the entire country [1]. Phase 2 of the project, which is currently underway, involves the installation of two Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) based wind measurement sites in the country. Meteorological data collected at these sites over a two-year period will provide the basis for validating the mesoscale modeling outputs from Phase 1.
