Wind speed data for modern data wind-powered shipping

Postby fahrrad » Sun Aug 18, 2013 2:48 pm

Hi,

I am trying to predict fuel and CO2 emissions savings from retro-fitting wind power technologies to modern cargo ships. For this, I am looking for accurate, and available data, that will give me wind velocities around the globe. I don't konw much about numerical weather modelling, but my assumption is that some kind of obsgrid, or analysis, data set would best fit my purpose. (In the future, I would like to do build a route optimisation tool, which would require forecasts as well, but that will be further down the line).

So, my apologies if my question is a bit off-topic. Any answer or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanx,
Michael
