Here we see the potential production of wind energy calculated from data of the European Centre for Medium Range Weather
Forecast (ECMWF) expressed in FLH. Europe itself has good wind conditions. But its use is limited by the high population density. In a belt 4000 to 5000 km
away from Kassel (Germany) there are also very good wind conditions and in most of the areas the population density is 2 orders of magnitude smaller than for
example in Germany.
