Wind Forecasting Improvement Project 2
The US Department of Energy’s Wind Forecasting Improvement Project 2 (WFIP2) collected data from a wide range of remote sensing devices and wind turbines in the Columbia River Gorge in 2016-2017. This was a collaborative project between DOE, DOE national labs, Vaisala, NOAA, and several other organizations.Â See https://a2e.energy.gov/data#wfip2 for details.
Experimental Planetary Boundary Layer Investigation (XPIA)
The US Department of Energy’s Experimental Planetary Boundary Layer Investigation (XPIA) data collected met tower, lidar, and other remote sensing data in 2015 near Boulder, Colorado.Â See https://a2e.energy.gov/data#xpia for details.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has developed the Lidar Turbulence Error Reduction Algorithm (L-TERRA) toolbox to process lidar data. For additional information, please visit the L-TERRA page on NREL’s Energy Innovation Portal.
