A new initiative will test scientific minds with the latest technology options to increase the quality, accuracy and access to data used in monitoring and predicting wind trends. Second-year students studying Bachelor and Master programs in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol will be involved in one of Lloyd’s Register’s latest wind energy initiatives - to develop and improve wind speed analysis and data for trend comparisons through Lloyd’s Register’s ‘windiness dashboard’.

This product can be used by investors, developers, owners and operators of current wind farms to assess and predict energy production, and at all project stages from planning and development through to operation. Lloyd’s Register experts will add further value in to this process by mentoring students in real-life experiences as product owners. The project has started and will run until April 2018. Lloyd’s Register and the University of Bristol will publish the outcome of the initiative and its initial findings in May 2018.
