I've looked at related questions but none seem to provide what I'm after.

I would like to hear if anyone knows open source data of annual wind speed (not direction) for the UK. The data can be downloaded by post code or areas of 1km2 to show mean wind speed across the nation. Just a simple figure (e.g 10mph) per grid square would be ideal so I can associate a colour for every grid to generate a 'heat map' for wind speed.

I've looked into:

Although I don't think that's what I'm after.

This is more what I'm after...http://www.renew-reuse-recycle.com/noabl.pl?go=Go&postcode=NE66+1TL&osx=&osy=&country=gb

    I cant give you a detailed answer just yet but have a look at the NOAA site for a start. they usually have world wide data – LaughU Apr 18 '17 at 12:38
  • Can the data be in netCDF? May it be daily data from that you calculate the annual average on your own? – daniel.neumann Apr 18 '17 at 15:19
  • opendata.stackexchange.com/questions/10154/… may or may not be helpful. – Barry Carter Apr 18 '17 at 16:11
  • @daniel.neumann indeed it can be daily data. So long as I can extract historical data at 1km2 grids then that would be perfect – James B Apr 19 '17 at 8:09

    @JamesB Soon, there will be (ECMWF ERA5)[climate.copernicus.eu/climate-reanalysis] data be available. It will be published within the (EU Copernicus Programme)[copernicus.eu/]. All Copernicus data (Satellite, Model, In-Situ Measurements) are for free (at least for European citizens). The data will be published within the (Copernicus Climate Service)[climate.copernicus.eu/climate-reanalysis]. – daniel.neumann Apr 20 '17 at 15:23
