The seasonal variation of the potential power production from wind energy shows significant differences in different regions.
On this slide you can see for example the ratio between the average electricity production in July and January.
We see, that Europe is a typical winter wind region with maxima in winter and minima in summer. While for example at the Saharan west coast we find maxima of the production in summer. In some other regions the production in July and January are quite similar. So the idea of selecting the regions in order to get the best match of production and electricity consumption suggests itself.
