Leading international renewable energy consultancy group Natural Power has now reached a total of 14 fully certified users of the widely used WAsP software. WAsP (the Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program) is the wind energy industry's standard software for performing wind flow modelling and analysis for wind farm energy yield assessments in non-complex flow environments.


The number of certified WAsP users employed by Natural Power is the largest of any international wind energy consultancy, and is second overall only to Risø DTU in Denmark, the developers and distributors of the WAsP software. Natural Power's WAsP certified wind analysts are located in the UK, France and the US.

Neil Douglas, Technical Director of Natural Power, commented: "Natural Power has been registering WAsP users since 1996 and we apply the software on client projects worldwide. This is in addition to providing industry leading flow modelling solutions in complex flow environments through the application of our VENTOS Complex Fluid Dynamics service. The fact that our wind resource experts are fully WAsP certified by Risø DTU is an achievement that we are proud of. Having our wind analysts obtain this certification displays our continued commitment to providing our clients with industry leading expertise, and also to the continued professional development of our staff.
