Wind data is essential for wind-farm developers and owners to ensure that their assets deliver the financial returns their investors expect. Wind-turbine technology continues to evolve, and wind projects are being developed in an increasingly competitive environment.
To meet the needs for accurate and timely data, a new type of modern wind measurement campaign has evolved — one that uses a combination of remote sensors and traditional met towers.
“A New Breed of Measurement Campaign” from Vaisala, a global provider in environmental and industrial measurement, details the ideal wind measurements for projects and more. Because there is no one right answer about what technology to use for the best results, the Campaign also suggests tools to help make the best decision.
It is a chapter from Vaisala’s recently released industry briefing, Remote Sensing Revolution.

- Why using remote sensors for prospecting gives developers a competitive edge
- How remote sensors are being used with towers to do better site assessments
- Why hub-height data is critical in project operations, and which applications are already being handled by remote sensors
