Innovative and disruptive low-cost LIDAR

Initiation | Alternative Energy | 30/03/2015

Windar Photonics’ admission to AIM provides investors with the opportunity to participate in the anticipated strong growth phase of this industrial technology company. Windar was created to commercialise an innovative low-cost, tower-mounted light detection and ranging (LIDAR) wind measurement system designed to increase wind turbine efficiency and reduce operational wear. With initial results showing that wind turbine energy efficiency can be increased by c 1-3%, payback of system installation can be as low as six months for a large 6MW system and around three years for the most frequently installed 1.5-2MW variants. Success will be determined by the rate at which new contracts can be won.
