Abstract The data base covers a time period of 10 years (2001 – 2010) containing hourly data and covering a wide range of atmospheric, wave and tidal information.
State of the art numerical modeling systems have been used for the simulation of the above data. Namely, the atmospheric modelling system SKIRON (Kallos G. et al 1997, Spyrou C. et al, 2010) and the 3rd generation spectral model WAM (Bidlot J eta al, 2003, Komen G. et al, 1994, WAMDIG, 1988) CY33R1 (ECMWF) have been utilized.
The parameters analyzed in this report for spotting advantageous areas for wind farms development are:
-- Wind power 80 m
-- Wind speed at 10 m
-- Wind Speed at 80 m
Moreover, a suitability index for wind farm sitting has been developed.
