What are the barriers to adoption of wind lidar?

This 2018 paper explored the current and historic barriers to the adoption of wind lidar for wind energy applications. It’s intended to help guide future research.

Written by members of the Task 32 Advisory Board it covered the work done by Task 32 and others in several themes:

  • Lidar for site assessment on land and offshore
  • Lidar for power performance testing of wind turbines
  • Lidar for turbine control
  • Lidar for load verification
  • Lidar in complex flow
  • Future challenges.

The paper is published as open access in the Remote Sensing journal.
