Understanding Wind Speeds

Here is a guide to areas of moderate wind speed and the estimated output from a small wind generator, compared to the average family in the UK, which consumes around 3,300kWh per year:

Areas with wind speeds of 4.5m/s, such as villages, small towns, woods and agricultural areas with many high hedges would expect to see wind speeds of around 4.5 m/s, producing 19,000kWh per year

Agricultural areas with some windbreaks and buildings would expect to see wind speeds of around 5.5 m/s, generating 30,000kWh per year

Open landscape with few buildings and no windbreak would expect to see wind speeds of around 6.5 m/s, producing 40,000kWh per year

Calculating the Wind Speed in Your Area

Here in the UK wind speed can vary and is dependant on a number of variables. The clearest way to estimate the wind speed at your site is to find the average annual wind speed (AAWA). This is an indication of how much wind is available and in the UK that figure could be as low as 4 m/s to around 9 m/s. This data is available for most countries in the world via local government websites. However, if you have trouble finding this information we can help you find what you need.
