The UK has the best wind resource in Europe and this is now starting to be harnessed through both on-shore and off-shore multi-MW scale wind farms. Microwind; essentially the installation of small scale, 1-10 kW wind turbines on buildings; is a rapidly emerging technology in the UK. Whilst performance figures for commercial wind farms are well known no such comparable data exists for the microwind market. This paper discusses site selection for the UK microwind trial which will start data collection in November 2007.
