Learn more about Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s modeling and simulation capabilities critical for the wind power industry during the next monthly installment of the Industrial Partnerships Office (IPO) Technology & Market Discovery Webinar series, on Tuesday, Dec. 9.

The presentation by Lab engineer and wind program leader Wayne Miller, titled "Toolkit for the Wind Power Industry," will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. PST.

High-resolution computer simulations provide useful data to wind farm developers and operators, enabling them to better select wind farm locations and operate the sites with increased efficiency. Improving the accuracy of wind predictions also is critical to electric grid operators who must dynamically balance the variable power generated by increasing or decreasing power production from other sources such as coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, geothermal and biomass.

The webinar is free on the Web.
