InnoWind aims to deliver new Copernicus downstream value-added products and services that fulfill the needs of the wind energy industry for land-based wind farm planning. Specifically, to:

  • Develop novel algorithms to derive aerodynamic surface properties from Copernicus data and test against ground truth at wind energy sites.
  • Integrate satellite-based map layers seamlessly in flow models operated by industrial end-users.
  • Document the scientific and financial impact of new satellite-based map layers for wind resource assessment.

Research hypothesis: The new generation of satellite products offered by Copernicus can be exploited to improve the accuracy and coverage of map layers that are used as input to state-of-the-art flow models.
