Databases Related to Marine and Wind Energy and the Environment

The list below compiles and provides access to external databases. While the respective scopes of each of the databases are varied, all convey information relevant to wind and marine renewable energy and the environment. The list of databases is not exhaustive and will be updated as needed. If you have comments on incorrect or missing material, please email tethys@pnnl.gov.

Databases Related to Marine and Wind Energy and the Environment

Title Technology Country Description
Supergen ORE Hub Research Landscape Marine Energy, Wind Energy United Kingdom

The Supergen ORE Hub Research Landscape is an interactive web tool that allows you to explore the latest information, research and technical challenges across the offshore wind, wave and tidal energy sectors. With information drawn from across academia, industry and policy makers, the tool is intended to provide an open and easily accessible data source of current research within offshore renewable energy which can be used by a range of stakeholders.

The Wind Power Wind Energy International

The Wind Power is a worldwide database containing data and reports related to wind farms, turbines, manufacturers, developers, and operators. The database provides access to information on over 19,000 wind farms and over 650 offshore projects. 

UK Marine Energy Database (UKMED) Marine Energy United Kingdom

RenewableUK's UK Marine Energy Database (UKMED) is a growing map and database of wave and tidal sites in the UK. The interactive map enables users to view project details including technology type, ownership, and project status.

UK Wind Energy Database (UKWED) Wind Energy United Kingdom

RenewableUK's UK Wind Energy Database (UKWED) contains useful information and data about onshore and offshore wind projects in the UK. An advanced search and interactive map is available for RenewableUK Members, as well as a project intelligence hub that hosts information on contracts, project ownership, generator type, and news relating to onshore and offshore projects. 

UKSeaMap 2010 Interactive Map United Kingdom

The Joint Nature Conservation Committee's (JNCC) UKSeaMap 2010 Project produced a seabed habitat map for the UK marine area. The interactive mapping portal contains a broadscale predicted seabed habitat map based on the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) habitat classifications, an updated map of coastal physiographic features, and the data used in the modelling process.

US Wind Turbine Database Wind Energy, Land-Based Wind, Offshore Wind United States of America

The United States Wind Turbine Database (USWTDB) provides the locations of land-based and offshore wind turbines in the United States, corresponding wind project information, and turbine technical specifications. The creation of this database was jointly funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Wind Energy Technologies Office via the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Electricity Markets and Policy Group, the U.S. Geological Survey Energy Resources Program, and the American Clean Power Association. The database is being continuously updated.

Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network (WTKN) Marine Energy United Kingdom

The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult's Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network (WTKN) is an open access database that contains reports, datasets, and project data related to environmental impacts and consents, grid connections, health and safety, and more. 

West Coast Ocean Data Portal United States of America

The West Coast Ocean Data Portal is a project of the West Coast Governors Alliance on Ocean Health to increase discovery and connectivity of ocean and coastal data and people to better inform regional resource management, policy development, and ocean planning. The Portal informs priority West Coast ocean issues such as tracking sources and patterns of marine debris, adaptation to sea-level rise, understanding impacts of ocean acidification on our coasts, and marine planning.
