Project description

English EN

Automated, low-cost solutions to support wind farm development

Wind energy represents a promising renewable power source and is an essential pillar of the EU’s Energy Union vision. The emerging sector is attracting huge investments and opening new opportunities for business and employment. However, procedures for prospection and wind energy project development remain slow. The identification of the ideal site is difficult while estimates and evaluation of bankability are time-consuming. The EU-funded WindSider project will provide an automated and cost-effective solution to generate reliable wind resource data and analytics to accelerate decision-making and lower risk of new wind farm projects.
