Managing growth: new industry-wide guidelines for accurate Wind Resource Assessment with dual scanning lidar

Winds of change are gusting in the field of wind energy. Driven by advancing technologies and unprecedented policy momentum globally, wind is poised for significant growth in 2024. As wind energy development accelerates, the need for accurate and reliable wind resource data is greater than ever. Since the turn of the century, the average hub height of wind turbines has nearly doubled as manufacturers design turbines with greater generating capacities. Consequently, traditional measurement methods such as meteorological masts have been almost completely replaced by modern lidar technology, especially offshore.
