Online software that determines if there is potential for wind power on your land (Norway)



Vindkart is developed to help norwegian landowners identify areas with potential for extraction of wind power on their land (primarily "unused and uninteresting land" such as peripheral farmland and industrial areas).


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 (grid coordinates >4 sets pr km2)

 

It is then revealed if there is possibility and potential for installing and producing wind power on the land, including
 

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