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:

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
