Wind Resource Assessment and Forecasting

This extensive session will cover most of the primary aspects of Wind Resource Assessment and Forecasting — from generation of continent-scale meteorological mapping to quantification of losses due to turbine blade icing to assessment of actual wind farm energy production. All of the presentations will describe innovative, leading-edge studies.
