- Tthe European WindScanner Research Infrastructure

    Project Details


    WindScanner is a distributed Research Infrastructure for atmospheric boundary-layer experimental research in wind and turbulence fields for wind energy.

    WindScanner builds upon recent advances in remote sensing-based technology developed on ground-based scanning wind lidars, able to measure and quantify the atmospheric wind fields and turbulence aloft. As well as being deployed onshore, the infrastructure can be operated offshore from stable and floating platforms or by doing measurement of near-coastal wind farms. WindScanner provides unique services for the scientific community and wind industry, a one-point of entry and a joint access programme, joint R&D development activities, joint training and educational programme, stable and effective management and a strategic approach for planning and implementing measurement campaigns in Europe. In the ESFRI Roadmap since 2010, WindScanner is in the Interim Phase and has indicated the European Research Infrastructures Consortium (ERIC) as the legal form for the future.
