A new study has been published reviewing the economically viable wind resource across the West Midlands region and key wind development constraints based on the current status of wind technology.
The study assists in the initial screening of coarse areas with potential for wind development in the region and consisted of a desktop assessment based on the updated GIS Mapping Tool initially designed for Government Office West Midlands.
