Several methods can be used to evaluate wind resources at a specific site; these methods include interview of people with local knowledge to identify regions with high and/or low wind speed, measurements only, measurement-correlation-prediction method, use of global databases, wind atlas methodology, site data-based modeling, and mesoscale and microscale modeling [4, 5].
Wind speeds of 70-80mph are likely around coastal areas, especially in Devon and Cornwall, as well as Wales and north-west England.
