It’s an understatement to say we’re living in a time of uncertainty. Wind resource assessment is not unlike prospecting for oil and gas. It uses sophisticated technology to gather large volumes of data; estimates and projections are made from complex models; and risk is managed by quantifying the uncertainties at each step. In the wind industry, developers gather data on the wind at prospective sites, analyze the data, and model the performance of a future wind farm.
