Ocean Wind Power Maps reveal possible wind energy sources.
NASA    Moffett Field, CA 94035
July 30, 2008 Created using nearly 10 years of data from NASA's QuikSCAT satellite, maps have many potential uses including planning location of offshore wind farms to convert wind energy into electric energy. According to Paul Dimotakis, chief technologist at JPL, wind energy has potential to provide 10-15% of future world energy requirements. If ocean areas with high winds were tapped for wind energy, they could potentially generate 500-800 W of energy per square meter.
