The scanning LiDAR will be used for academic and operational purposes by the DAUC, EMO and SEM-REV research groups in the LHEEA laboratory to respond to societal and environmental issues directly related to energy transition. It will thus be a decisive tool to support the development of offshore wind turbines including:

  •     detailed assessment of the specificities of offshore wind resources and the interactions at work;
  •     understanding of complex coastal atmospheric phenomena;
  •     better characterization of wind resources;
  •     verification of offshore wind performance;
  •     quantification of wake interactions between wind turbines,
  •     better assessment of the environmental and economic impact.
