Abstract: Abstract: Assessing wind resources (wind speeds, directional distribution, turbulence intensity, etc.) for wind energy projects demands a level of detail and accuracy regarding the spatial and temporal variations of the wind and turbulence climate, which is beyond that required for other purposes. Hence a wide range of measurements and models have been developed and are employed to provide assessments for initial site identification, quantifying the long-term wind resource based on short-term measurements, extrapolating the vertical wind speed profile, calculating the potential power output from each turbine and for wind farm layout to optimize power output. Here we give an overview of the state of the art in wind resource assessment and look to the near-future in terms of developments in modeling and measurement techniques.
