Where is there potential for wind energy? Swiss federal base map (SFOE)

The wind energy concept defines the main areas with wind-power potential which must be investigated as part of cantonal structural planning. The Swiss federal government has identified the main areas with wind-power potential, taking into account the high wind energy yields (basic data from the Wind Atlas of Switzerland, www.windatlas.ch), the principal federal government interests and sufficient spatial concentration.
