Online software to calculate if there is a potential for wind power on your land (Norway)



Vindkart is developed to help norwegian landowners identify areas with potential for utilization of wind power on their land (primarily farmland and industrial areas which are often unused and uninteresting).


The software works with adresses or cadastral references. Once inserted, the land is automatically mapped and the entire area is evaluated based on a number of factors such as

 

  • Protected areas (nature reserves and other protected areas)
     
  • Cultural Heritage sites
     
  • Distance to houses and buildings
     
  • Access to power grid
     
  • Wind data

 

The result shows if there is possibility and potential for installing and producing wind power on the land, including
 

  • the amount of power that is expected to be generated
     
  • the number of households this could supply and
     
  • the compensation the landowner can expect to receive if he decides to parcel the land for a wind power facility.
