At EWEA, in line with this year's conference's theme of 'growth', Met Office experts will demonstrate how ongoing scientific research and investment in solutions can help the industry accurately assess the wind and identify and mitigate the risks associated with wind resource assessment. The focus will be on providing support for developers through the life cycle of wind farm assets, from site delivery to operation and maintenance, enabling companies to maximise their return on investment and grow a successful business.
"Managing wind risk is critical. It's not enough to understand only the climatology, it's also vital to understand the risks associated with wind assessment in relation to the overall return on investment of any project and the impact of wind resource on a company's renewable energy business."
At EWEA Met Office scientists will take part in presentations, examining:
Steve Norman, Senior Wind Energy Consultant at the Met Office, will be sitting on a panel of industry leading experts at the New Sources of Capital Seminar at EWEA hosted by Ernst and Young, on Weds 6 Feb at 11:00am.
Rob Harrison, Head of Renewables at the Met Office says, “Managing wind risk is critical. It’s not enough to understand only the climatology, it’s also vital to understand the risks associated with wind assessment in relation to the overall return on investment of any project and the impact of wind resource on a company’s renewable energy business.
“We have developed and applied the latest science to create products for the renewable energy sector to provide businesses with the right information, readily available in the right format, for every stage of the wind farm’s life cycle.”
Setting the standards for wind, the Met Office offers a suite of solutions for the wind energy sector to cover each stage of a wind asset’s business life cycle, including:
The Met Office team will be available to talk about each of the solutions, their application and benefits to the renewable energy industry at stand A-L74.
