It cannot be overemphasized: deciding on a suitable location for a wind farm and each one of its turbines is critical to the project’s success. There are, however, many complex issues associated with wind project siting, beyond determining the availability of a strong and consistent wind current.
The possibilities are seemingly endless when it comes to finding land to develop wind energy and how to utilize that space for optimal wind power generation.
geoAMPS offers Web-based software that helps wind farm planners navigate these complexities. altAMPS, one of the suite of products offered by geoAMPS, provides an efficient and useful application to help with all the possible data to consider when it comes to wind energy siting. The software automates much of the information essential to making important project siting decisions.
North American Clean Energy, a leading publication following the renewable energy industries, has published an article from geoAMPS on wind siting and how the automated approach made possible by our altAMPS software helps wind developers arrive at near optimal siting solutions. The article titled “Wind Farm Siting Software Solutions” can be found in the January/February 2013 edition of North American Clean Energy.
