Lidar Enabled Wind Turbine Technology Increases Speed to Market While Reducing Both Mass and Cost of the Turbine

Share Article

Ocean Tomo Bid-Ask™ Market announces a LIDAR technology auction that reduces wind-power generation costs by improving turbine performance in the design process resulting in a 5-10% projected CapEx advantage.

Technology Reduces Wind-Power Energy Cost

Deploying the technological advancement embodied in the patent into the turbine design process will reduce the turbine’s mass and cost, increase speed to market, and reduce manufacturing and installation costs.

Ocean Tomo Transactions, LLC will auction Lot 135, Lidar Enabled Wind Turbine Technology on the Ocean Tomo Bid-Ask™ Market. This technology portfolio discloses leveraging fluid movement data using LIDAR or SODAR into the wind turbine design and operational process, enabling significant savings in CapEx. The technology uses fluid movement data at a point upstream of a turbine to estimate fluctuations and modify the turbine's operational characteristics accordingly. The resulting operational optimization of the turbine maximizes turbine power generation and reduces operational stress on the turbine components.

Deploying the technological advancement embodied in the patent into the turbine design process will reduce the turbine’s mass and cost, increase speed to market, and reduce manufacturing and installation costs. Steve Taber, the inventor of technology and co-founder of the Princeton Energy Group, indicates, “the improved turbine performance will result in a 5-10% projected CapEx advantage. Since wind-generated electricity is dominated by CapEx (not OpEx), this CapEx advantage goes almost directly to the bottom line.”

With a remaining life of 12 years and a priority date in 2009, the patented technology in auction lot 135 would be a valuable strategic IP investment for wind turbine OEMs seeking advantages against competitors in the US market. In addition, LIDAR and SODAR companies seeking revenue-enhancing relationships with turbine manufacturers will also find this technology of interest.

As reported in Lazard’s Levelized Cost of Energy Analysis 14.0, wind is the lowest-cost source of electricity in the US. The report indicates that wind-generated electricity costs as little as $26/MWh, less than solar (≤$29), fully depreciated nuclear (≤$29), and fully depreciated CCG (≤$28). The technology presented in Lot 135 on the Ocean Tomo Bid-Ask™ market will enable wind to increase its lead in the economic competition by driving down wind energy cost even further.

Utilization of the technology presented in Lot 135 creates value that reduces the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE), contributing to both long-term returns for customers and supports the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of ensuring affordable, reliable and sustainable modern energy, reducing carbon emissions impacting our world.
