Abstract. We propose a server-client web architecture identifying areas with high wind energy potential by employing 3D technologies and OGC standards. The assessment of a whole city or sub-regions will be supported by integrating Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with historical wind sensor readings. The results, in 3D space, of such analysis could be used for locating installation points of small-scale vertical axis wind turbines in an urban area.
