Project description

This three-year project (awarded to DNV GL in 2014) will consist of:

  • mesoscale wind mapping for both countries
  • a comprehensive 2-year ground-based measurement campaign
  • a fully validated microscale wind resource map  

This will give Zambia and Tanzania their first comprehensive wind resource atlas, enabling policymakers to take informed decisions on future energy infrastructure development.

Throughout the project, DNV GL will engage directly with local governmental and private sector stakeholders to educate them on renewable energy development. This will help establish a new and vibrant industry within each country. A number of in-country workshops and knowledge transfer activities will be held throughout the project.
