wind measurement

Why measuring the wind?

A wind farm is a huge investment, whereas the costs for a high quality measurement are quite low in relation to the overall investment. Nevertheless many project developers and investors don’t want to pay for a high quality wind measurement even if the cost is low compared to the overall investment: is such a high quality measurement really necessary? Why do I have to measure a whole year? Why can’t I use cheaper solutions? What does a cheap, low-quality solution mean for the whole wind power project.

Norms and Standards

High uncertainties mean a high financial risk. To reduce the uncertainties and the financial risk as much as possible international standards have been set up to guarantee for a high quality and low uncertainties in wind measurement.
