Abstract

Wind energy is one of the most available energies in Morocco that could contribute appreciably to the improvement of national energy mix. Thus, identifying optimal locations for wind farm energy is a key issue in the wind energy development process. However, site selection is a complex study that involves not only technical considerations, but also economic, social and environmental requirements. Our research aims to develop a dynamic, comprehensive, multiscale and multi-criteria approach for the assessment of quality wind power sites resulting from an in-depth bibliographic study and extensive consultation of a set of professionals in the field. Our approach is based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and Multi-Criteria Decision Making analysis (MCDM) to assess suitable locations for wind farm energy in Morocco. The approach is aimed to be dynamic by consideration of relevant criteria for site selection and by using data of high quality and resolution. This paper aims to present the framework of our research. We start by exposing and analysing basic concepts and methods of wind farm site selection from the literature, then we present and discuss the first methodological guidelines of the research.
