09:30 - 11:00 LiDARs replacing meteorological masts

Resource assessment  
Onshore      Offshore    


Room: Montparnasse

Over the last five years the on and offshore wind industries have seen an increase in both acceptance of LiDAR measurements and commercial applications for LiDAR. It is through sharing the results of validation studies that uncertainties can be reduced and the full commercial value of this technology and its wide number of applications can be realized.

Learning objectives

  • Delegates will be able to describe the value of validation of floating against fixed LiDARs and defend why this practice is a suitable alternative to validation against meteorological masts
  • Delegates will be able to explain why LiDAR measurements are at least as good as meteorological mast measurements
  • Delegates will be able to identify two different approaches to using commercial LiDARs to measure turbulence intensity
  • Delegates will be able to explain why different measurement devices have different uncertainties levels
This session will be chaired by:
Breanne Gellatly, Direction of European Operations, Axys, Italy
