In 2009, Lidar technology leader Leosphere and NRG formed a global joint venture to expand the use of remote sensing in the wind energy industry. Through this partnership, we offer several Lidar systems that are uniquely designed for wind resource assessment and wind turbine optimization applications. Reduce uncertainty and increase the profitability of your wind farm project with precise, bankable data.
