Resource assessment tools and techniques continue to advance in support of the important early steps of a project. Developments in technology are helping the wind industry to narrow assessment gaps, predict losses and estimate better capture rates. This diverse panel of experts will explore emerging assessment techniques in their areas of expertise including realistic plant-loss estimations, improvements to forecasting using historical weather data and energy loss modelling of wind turbine icing.
