From measurements to long-term estimates: which prospecting methods work best today?

Resource assessment

When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 11:00 - 12:15
Where: Room: Bilbao

Session description

How can we best estimate the long-term wind resource involving on-site measurements, and what are the requirements on these measurements? The session is about these two basic questions and finds answers both for onshore and offshore projects.
