† These hourly timeseries datasets were generated by AWSTruepower who simulated wind speeds over the USVI using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model version 3.5. Initial and updated boundary conditions were provided by the ERA-Interim reanalysis dataset. Further details regarding these datasets can be found in the AWSTruepower Map Memo (936 KB PDF).

Previous NREL and EDIN efforts pertinent to the development of renewable energy projects and integration in the US Virgin Islands can be found in the links below. Developers are highly encouraged to invest time to understand these previous efforts as development of any energy project in the USVI requires careful consideration of many different aspects that will influence a projects viability. Additional USVI data sets can also be found in the NREL Wind Prospector
