With almost 94 GW of wind power projects already installed in the European Union* and many of the most suitable sites already developed, developers are now turning to more complex sites resulting in great resource assessment challenges.

Reducing the uncertainties associated with energy yield predictions is of huge importance in order to increase project bankability and ensure investor confidence. Windpower Monthly’s 2nd Wind Resource Assessment Forum will share the leading practices for overcoming the latest resource assessment challenges and examine applicable solutions for improving the accuracy of production estimates.

Highlights will include

  • Obtaining project finance – how to paint as accurate a picture as possible yet mitigate the impacts of uncertainties
  • As assessment of the benefits of comparing pre-construction and operational data and the potential advantages for streamlining future resource assessment and O&M processes
  • Insight into the latest developments for coupling mesoscale and CFD models
  • Steps for achieving more accurate estimates of wake effects
  • Wider remote sensing applications both onshore and offshore and the current status of a remote sensing specific IEC standard
