ZephIR Lidar Scientist To Deliver Lecture at Europes Leading Wind Energy School
Industry-leading wind lidar manufacturers ZephIR Lidar have been invited to speak at a prestigious wind energy summer school in Copenhagen.
Doctor Mark Pitter will represent ZephIR at The Technical University of Denmarks (DTU) PhD Remote Sensing for Wind Energy programme, a 5-day summer school focusing on advances in remote sensing techniques.
He will deliver an overview and introduction to continuous wave (CW) lidar technology and applications on the second day of lectures, which run from Monday 10th June to Friday 14th June 2013.

As one of only two lidar manufacturers represented, the invitation reinforces ZephIRs position among the remote wind measurement elite. DTU Wind Energy the Universitys dedicated wind power centre- is the only
department of its kind in the world, and is internationally recognised as a world-leading wind energy research institution.
Dr. Pitters fellow speakers include professors from DTU Wind Energy, University of Colorado, University of Stuttgart, University of Auckland and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Dr. Pitter said: The list of presenters reads like a whos who of remote wind sensing- all of them are very well known in the sector. Speaking at DTU gives us a chance to describe and publicise ourselves to a very focused team of prominent figures in wind energy and to the PhD students, the potential wind engineers and lidar purchasers of the future.
The course registration deadline is 31st May 2013. For details on how to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Zephir Ltd.
Celebrating 10 years of wind lidar excellence
In 2003 we released the first commercial wind lidar, ZephIR®, exploiting decades of research at UK government Research & Development establishment QinetiQ. Designed specifically for the wind industry ZephIR has paved the way for many of the remote sensing devices seen in the market today. Our original lidar technology continues to innovate with world firsts such as taking measurements from a wind turbine spinner and being the first to deploy an offshore wind lidar, both fixed and floating. ZephIR has also now amassed more than 3.5 million hours of operation across 650+ deployments globally spanning a decade of commercial experience. For wind measurements onshore, offshore and in turbine-mounted applications, ZephIR provides accurate, reliable finance-grade wind data.
Zephir Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fred. Olsen Ltd. – established in the UK in 1963 with business interests primarily focussed on renewable energy, including ZephIR.
