Ecofys has released a statement on the use of wind lidar, specifically ZephIR 300, to reduce uncertainty on wind farm developments.

The statement reports that “lidar wind measurements have been extensively verified against reliable reference anemometers over many sites” and “there is now industry consensus that lidar is a proven technology for wind resource assessment” referring specifically to the ZephIR 300 which is one of the two systems most tested to-date. It is reported that other lidar systems commercially available would only attain the same status if successful on further verification tests. A key driver in the successful implementation of lidar on wind energy projects is the cost-benefit analysis of systems. Ecofys have confirmed that “the advantage of a well-designed wind measurement campaign is clear: reduced uncertainty leading to a lower equity investment and improved IRR.
