NEWA aims to integrate and coordinate national efforts around R&D initiatives towards the creation and publication of a New European Wind Atlas, thereby allowing for a more efficient use of financial resources and research capabilities. The Atlas, based on improved modelling competencies on atmospheric flow and its interactions with wind turbines and wind farms, will cover all EU Member States and some Associated Countries, as well as their exclusive economic zones, both onshore and offshore, and should become a key tool not only for manufacturers and developers, but also for public authorities and decision-makers, by reducing overall uncertainties in determining wind conditions.
