"If you cannot measure it then you cannot improve it – the challenge of using the wind effectively"
The wind is always trying to break your wind turbine, and they are in places where it is not easy to fix them! The need to understand the wind conditions which turbines must endure, combined with the need make predictions to fulfill the requirements for financing projects, is driving the achievement of degrees of precision and detail in wind measurement and assessment in the wind industry not envisaged elsewhere.
