Resource assessment - Modelling & Measurements 1

Offshore wind Onshore wind Technical and Scientific Programme

When: Tuesday, 23 November 2021, 13:00 - 14:30
Where: Auditorium A15

Session description

The more accurate the assessment of the wind resource is when planning a wind farm, the more accurate the estimation of Annual Energy Production will be, and hence the stronger the business case and the lower the financing costs. Proper wind resource assessment is therefore a cornerstone of every wind project, especially as the environment for wind projects becomes increasingly merchant. The "Resource Assessment" sessions will focus on reducing uncertainty when estimating how much wind there is at a given site, through better models and validation tools. It is designed for wind energy professionals who conduct or commission wind resource assessment campaigns, researchers working on wind dynamics and modelling, data scientists and analysts, as well as anyone interested in staying up-to-date on new technology and research developments in this fast-moving and increasingly digital field.
