Wind Resource Assessment

Everything depends on your initial resource assessment, so get the complete picture with modern lidar solutions.

New WindCube enhancements

New innovations and services extend the frontiers for the most accurate, trusted and proven lidar for Wind Resource Assessment (WRA).

WindCube has long been one of the most accurate and proven lidars on the market, deployed in both simple and complex terrains. These new capabilities extend the frontiers even further so you can leverage WindCube almost anywhere, in all types of environments.

Video: Elevated Wind Resource Assessment

Wind resource assessment is a crucial, pressure-filled stage in wind energy development. And legacy technologies, such as met masts, are showing their limitations with today’s larger turbines — especially for offshore projects.

The WindCube® series of vertical profiling and 3D scanning lidars are accurate, rigorously validated, cost-effective supplements (or replacements) for met masts and other technologies. Developers around the globe are using WindCube to reduce risk, improve bankability and decision-making, and make better investments.
