13. Wind Energy Projects in Cold Climates



The large-scale exploitation of cold climate sites has been limited by our lack of knowledge about their special challenges and the lack of proven and economical technological solutions. The purpose of this report is to provide the best available recommendations on this topic, reduce the risks involved in undertaking projects in cold climates, and accelerate the growth of wind energy production in these areas. This document addresses many special issues that must be considered over the lifetime of a cold climate wind energy project. The importance of site measurements, project design, and system operation is emphasised. [Preace, excerpt]
