Offshore Wind Technical Potential in WBG Client Countries

20 Like

This record contains the tabular data (xlsx) and poster maps that accompanies the information provided in the the WBG report published in October 2019 titled, "Going Global: Expanding Offshore Wind to Emerging Markets", linked below. Following on from the report, the same methodology was used to generate maps for all WBG client countries with a coastline and with offshore wind resource. Some regional maps (Caribbean Islands, Caspian Sea, Black Sea) were also generated. In some cases maps were generated to illustrate the absence of any resource, to support discussions with clients. All outputs arr published on the World Bank website and collated on the ESMAP website: https://esmap.org/offshore-wind. This dataset contains tabular information on wind speed and water depth categories for floating and fixed offshore wind in WB client countries that have viable technical potential. Links to the individual country PDF maps can also be accessed below.
