DOE Great Lakes: An integrated approach to offshore wind energy assessment: Great Lakes 3D wind experiment

Project Details


Project Goals: The datasets to be collected within the project will be (i) linked to existing resource estimates, (ii) used in a closure (instrument inter-comparison) analysis based in part on the in situ observations, (iii) used to evaluate meteorological and wind farm models (iv) analyzed to characterize meteorological conditions in the coastal Great Lakes region where highly resolved observations are currently lacking, and (v) used to develop best-practice strategies and documentation for each measurement type focused on its application to wind energy.
