Developing Design Wind Speeds for Transmission and Distribution Lines in Belize and Accounting for Climate Change

This report develops an evidence-based strength and loading standard for the country of Belize to use with future power line infrastructure. The goal of this project was to review current BEL design standards and suggest appropriate storm wind speeds and geographic extent of storms based on reasonable mean recurrence intervals. Climate change effects to storm strength and impact storm behavior and frequency are also considered.
