Abstract

Wind energy is one of several renewable energy sources that would help shape the future power generation industry. In this paper, a wind power plant is suggested to meet 40 % of electricity consumption of Highfield Campus at the University of Southampton. After considering the environmental effects, cost analysis, efficiency, the location for the wind turbine was recommended to be on the coast of the Isle of Wight, making it an offshore plant. The system was designed with two wind turbines with an installed capacity of 1 MW each. The plant would help reduce the greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuelled fired plants.

Keywords; Wind Power, Renewable energy, Wind speed, Design, Onshore.
