The Front Cover

An industry collaboration has developed a ‘Complex Flow Solver’ (CFS) that combines 50-point continuous wave lidar measurements, high-resolution open source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling and powerful cloud computing to deliver the best available solution for bankable wind resource and energy yield assessment based on standalone lidar. The project has benefited from Horizon 2020 funding from the European Union. In the article on page 6 you can read more about this project.
