Why accurate energy assessments are so important to the wind industry

Energy production estimates are essential for accurate project planning. To get a reliable assessment, third-party consultants often analyse warranted power curves from the manufacturer to predict a project’s expected overall performance. But recent research on these assessments has uncovered a fresh understanding of risk for developers, financing institutions and investors.

Currently, the biggest barriers to accurate energy assessments are the lack of transparency and standardisation in calculating expected performance. So what’s the answer?

Sign up to this Wind Power Monthly roundtable discussion, produced in partnership with Vestas, to hear expert opinion on why the way forward is through a common methodology that allows all industry players to participate at the same level.
