Wind energy resource mapping of Palestine
Renewable and Sustainable Energy Review, vol. 56
pp. 551-562
This study presents the analysis of the climatology of the wind profile over the State of Palestine, together with the selection of the typical meteorological year, the wind power density and the annual energy production. This climatology is based on a 12-year simulation (2000–2011) using the numerical weather prediction model WR. For Gaza and West Bank region the highest wind speeds are observed during the winter period and the prevailing wind direction is westerly for both Gaza and West Bank.
