3TIER, a provider of global renewable energy assessment and forecasting services, has added Mexico to its FirstLook Assessment mapping tool, providing instant, online access to a 5 kilometer wind data set for most of North America.

"Building on the success of our FirstLook online mapping tool in the U.S. and Canada, we expect more developers will take notice and begin exploring wind potential in Mexico - all at a tenth of the price of a traditional wind assessment,” says Pascal Storck, president of 3TIER.

The mapping of Mexico is part of 3TIER’s “REmapping the World,” a longer-term, global initiative launched in March when 3TIER unveiled an initial global wind map at a 15 kilometer resolution.

Over the next 18 months, 3TIER plans to continue to map the world for wind at a higher resolution of 5 kilometers, country by country, based on a priority order that takes into account issues such as renewable energy policies, availability of the wind resource and economic development status. The maps will be available through the FirstLook Assessment online tool. 3TIER plans to release FirstLook maps for Chile and Columbia on June 30.
