open in viewer

A wind energy resource assessment of eastern Massachusetts was conducted to identify possible wind farm locations. Wind interpolation software (WindMap) was used to create a wind speed map based on anemometer data gathered from various sources. GIS software (IDRISI) was used to quantify and mask out unrealistic locations based on societal factors including distance from power lines, land use, and population density. Potential locations were identified near Boston along the coast, above Worcester, and along eastern Nantucket.
