WEBINAR: Managing Resource Risk at Complex Sites

How meteorological expertise, state-of-the-art atmospheric models and advanced measurement methods can increase project value and reduce financial risk.

Feb 20, 2014

2:00pm – 3:00pm EST​

All wind project investments depend greatly on the uncertainty or risk in a project’s wind resource estimates. This is especially true of large wind projects at complex sites with steep terrain, varying thermal stability, mesoscale circulations and other challenging meteorological aspects. Such conditions are often misrepresented or missed in conventional models and measurement techniques.
