Identify and mitigate barriers to the
use of lidar for wind energy applications.
- General Meetings
Establish the state of the art in a particular topic or application, identify the barriers to adoption of lidar for that application, work out if those are real, and suggest a path forward to get through them
IEA Wind Task 32 - Wind Lidar Systems for Wind Energy Deployment
IEA Wind Task 32 “Wind Lidar Systems for Wind Energy Deployment” provides an international open platform for industrial and academic partners to exchange new ideas, experiences, and measurement techniques for lidar in wind energy. Important results have been published as reports, presented at conferences, and developed into recommended practices.
Our overall objective is to identify and to mitigate barriers to the use of the lidar technology in wind energy applications. Workshops focused on one of the application areas listed below are held regularly to allow experts to meet and make progress. Also, we aim to build a community around the use of lidar for wind energy by holding a general meeting every year, providing a newsletter, and promoting Task 32 to a wide range of stakeholders.
