Scientific innovation and superior metrology of WindCube technology.
Lidar is steadily replacing met masts as the wind energy industry’s modern standard for Wind Resource Assessment and Power Performance Testing. The success of our globally recognized WindCube lidar suite is rooted in a long history of scientific discovery, investment, and advocacy. New and ongoing scientific studies continue to prove WindCube wind lidar as the gold standard for wind measurements.
Take advantage of the latest research and deepen your understanding of WindCube lidar technology with presentations created by Vaisala scientists and other industry experts. Subjects range from comparative analyses and novel measurement techniques to onshore and offshore suitability studies, and much more. The latest presentations will be posted here as they become available.
