In 2009, Lidar technology leader Leosphere and NRG Systems formed a global joint venture to expand the use of remote sensing in the wind energy industry and, most recently, in meteorology. Through this partnership, we offer several Lidar systems that are uniquely designed for wind resource assessment, wind turbine optimization, and various professional weather enterprise applications. Reduce and resolve uncertainty, make informed decisions, and increase the profitability of your project with precise, bankable data.
APPLICATIONS IN WIND ENERGY
