Wind lidar can be used for other applications in wind energy. For example, wind lidar are being used commercially to forecast wind speed ramps, and can also be used for atmospheric science research. It has also been used to forecast instrument icing. Wind lidar also has applications outside of wind energy, for example for weather forecasting, aviation or transport, and it is helpful to share knowledge across disciplines. Task 32 provides a community for the exchange of new ideas about how to use wind lidar.
