Wind measurement technology and its uses have evolved apace with turbine technology and the push into new terrains. Remote sensing devices, offering a compelling alternative to met towers, are now used by industry leaders as essential tools in developing and operating wind projects.

How has remote sensing technology benefited the wind industry, and what is its potential?

In Remote Sensing Revolution, a report available only from Vaisala, ten wind industry leaders answer these questions, sharing their experiences from across the sector, as developers and operators, investors, consultants and manufacturers.

Remote Sensing Revolution - Topics include...

Wind farm in hills

The Challenges of Complex Terrain

The wind industry is expanding into more and more challenging areas, including rugged, hilly landscapes where the wind flow is complex and difficult to predict. 

Validation

Verification of remote sensing systems is an important part of obtaining competitive financing for development projects.  

A revolution in the way we measure, understand and manage wind resources around the world.

-Pascal Storck, in the Foreword

RS technology has a place in the wind industry and will continue to become more common.

- Leading industry consultant, in "The Industry View" chapter

It may be possible to finance projects using only RS data in the medium to long-term.

- An investment principal, in "The Industry View" chapter

In a perfect world I would have a fleet of 50 SoDARs and use fewer met masts.
