(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from the Stanford University School of Engineering and the University of Delaware developed a wind model to determine if there is enough wind to power the world’s electricity needs in 2030.

The study results were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by Mark Z. Jacobson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford and Cristina Archer, an associate professor of geography and physical ocean science and engineering at the University of Delaware.

The study involved a three-dimensional atmosphere-ocean-land computer model known as GATOR-GCMOM. Jacobson and Archer adapted this computer model to compute the maximum wind power potential worldwide. In this calculation they took into account the wind reduction caused by the turbines. The turbine model assumed that they could be installed at any location without any limitations set.
