Energy from the Air

Dr Peter Clive from SgurrEnergy will talk on the subject of renewable energy and in particular wind energy.

Peter took his PhD in physics in 2002 at the University of Glasgow. He has had a central role in the development of the Galion Lidar, the 2nd generation wind Lidar system. This system enables wind fields to be surveyed with previously unobtainable detail and precision, revealing flow characteristics and structures that have a significant impact on the productivity and longevity of wind turbines. Peter also pioneered the introduction of response deficit analysis into wind turbine performance assessment, allowing the expertise and experience of wind analysts to be leveraged in the most focused and cost effective manner. His interests also include innovative resource assessment techniques that extract all the available information from the long and short term datasets from target and reference sites, minimizing project uncertainty and boosting project value. Peter has published widely on the subject of Lidar and has addressed many conferences around the world.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_single_image image=”14556″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”14559,14558,153″ onclick=”link_no” custom_links_target=”_self” column_number=”3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_text_separator title=”Please let us know if you’re coming along” title_align=”separator_align_center” border=”no” title_color=”#8224e3″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
