How to deliver sustainable wind energy using bigger, better turbines
Join this Windpower Monthly webinar to hear Hexagon and our panel of industry experts discuss why larger, more efficient wind turbines are the answer to achieving sustainable onshore and offshore wind growth.
One of the biggest factors behind the reduction in levelised cost of energy (LCoE) from wind is the adoption of bigger turbines. Using turbines with bigger maximum power ratings, larger rotor diameters and increased hub heights has meant onshore and offshore wind farms can be built with fewer turbines, reducing capital expenditure and maintenance costs.
Join this Windpower Monthly webinar to hear Hexagon and our panel of experts discuss the key issues surrounding the development of next-generation turbines and how this will help deliver sustainable growth and development for the wind industry.
Sign up for this webinar to learn more about:
• The primary benefits and challenges associated with using larger turbines, such as design, manufacture, installation, asset management, environmental concerns and more…
• How big data, analytics, IoT and AI will continue to improve the design of wind turbines throughout their entire lifecycle.
• The other key factors that will ensure greater sustainability as wind capacity expands – from digitisation to reducing energy consumption in supply chains.
