In recent years, the focus on alternative energy has grown and with that the interest in optimizing of known alternative energy sources. It has been shown by Catch The Wind inc. that wind sensing Doppler LIDAR mounted on a wind turbine can be used to optimize the performance of wind turbines up to 10%. This project investigates a novel technique of Doppler LIDAR and its pros and cons. In addition to this, other uses of the LIDAR will be investigated. This could be temperature measurements, ash detection, or detection of atmospheric composition such as CO2 concentrations.
