There is a common belief that countries located in the doldrums with prevailing monotonous weather, characterized by light winds, cannot harness the wind for feasible energy production. This paper reexamines such a belief and presents a novel approach to assess the techno-economic potential of wind turbine generator sites in Malaysia, which lies in the equatorial, low wind speed doldrums. Dissimilar to other techniques that account for planetary-scale winds only, a numerical weather prediction (NWP) prospecting tool for mesoscale winds is used to forecast the wind characteristics. Potential sites from the forecasting studies are further investigated for economic feasibility by using a commercial wind turbine generator and a financial analysis method. From the economic analysis, it is found that unlike what is widely touted, there is an actual potential of wind energy in Malaysia, manifested through the several economically viable wind turbine generating sites.
