Wind energy is one of the fastest growing segments of the electricity market in many nations and this trend will likely continue as countries strive to reduce greenhouse gas Read more Pathfinder for Sustainable Wind Power Plants
A windfarm’s most important resource is, for obvious reasons, wind. So naturally, one would believe that the higher the wind, the better it is for wind energy, right? Unfortunately, that’s not quite the case. Higher wind speeds on a windfarm would result in higher wind energy production only in a band of speeds that the Read more Extreme Wind Analysis at a Wind Turbine Site
Oops, looks like your laptop just crashed - said V to K! I look around and see a bunch of my team trying to decode why K's laptop just crashed and then follows a plethora of wise advise on how to save your laptop from crashing!

Previously we discussed the need to be lean, nimble and reactive during the wind farm development process, and the importance of chasing the risk factors in a project development in order to discover with minimum time and resources whether a site has the required x factor, or whether dark clouds loom. Spouting conceptual platitiudes is the Read more WindQuest: the Engine to Power Lean Wind Farm Development
A few years back when I was toying with the idea of taking the plunge with starting a new wind farm development consultancy I dutifully read all the popular literature concerning how to start a company. One highly influential book in the space is called “The Lean Startup” by Eric Ries. In the book Ries Read more Why We Need Lean Wind Farm Development
