AEI Wind Course CD-Rom

This CD-ROM, “Wind Energy and Wind Turbines”, provides a tremendous amount of training material on all aspects of large and small wind power, wind characteristics, instrumentation, design of wind turbines, electrical aspects, system performance, and siting. And, it is a fantastic bargain at $25. Dr. Vaughn Nelson, Ken Starcher, and the AEI staff have been deeply involved with wind energy since the early 1970′s and they are very well respected by the industry.

Wind Maps

In this section we have compiled wind maps from the U.S. Department of Energy (US-DOE) and other sources. We have also included some solar maps for people working with hybrid wind and solar systems. We expect to add more maps over time as we gain permission to post them. If you do not find the resource information you need here, we invite you to e-mail us with a request for assistance. Bergey Windpower has wind resource data that we have not yet posted
