No systematic wind resource measurements have been carried out in Palau over the years, though they are being planned. Based on measurements made for climate records, it appears unlikely that wind energy can be a significant resource for power generation. However, since wind power is very site-specific, proper assessment is needed. Wind energy measurements using well instrumented 30-metre masts are planned to commence in 2013 and a proper wind map of the main islands should be available by 2015.
