There is a moderate seasonal wind resource in the RMI, with perhaps sufficient wind for energy development in the northernmost islands. However, there is very little data on wind conditions and none specifically designed for assessing its energy potential. It would be worthwhile assessing the wind energy potential for Majuro and Ebeye, where power demands are high. In 2012, two 34-metre wind resource assessment masts were installed in the outer islands to monitor and collect wind data. Source: IRENA Country Lighthouse Report
