Increasing the impact of wind lidar through digitalization

Clifton, Andrew; Vasiljevic, Nikola; Würth, Ines

Wind lidars allow new approaches to building and operating wind plants but also generate huge amounts of data. This white paper provides a short overview of how digitalization -- the process of converting information into discoverable, shareable, and actionable computer-readable data -- could help the wind energy industry benefit from wind lidar, and what needs to be done to make this vision a reality.
