© The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2018. This study analyses the relationship among various climate factors and their effect on the wind power density available in a coastal region. Climate data from several offshore wind farms in the East Asian region is extracted to perform the calculations and analysis. Reasons for variations of climate parameters such as average wind speed, average temperature, air density, average pressure, average precipitation, average humidity and their influences on wind power generation are explored. It is expected that this study will help the investors to perform a feasibility study on the availability of wind energy at a certain nearshore area before setting up wind farms.
