Abstract:

The possibility to use footprint models, which are well established in micrometeorology and ecology, is discussed also for the fine-tuning of the location of wind turbines. A selection of possible models is given. In an example it is shown that differences in the wind power of two nearby located wind turbines can be explained by the presence of forested areas within the footprint.
