IWE has in-depth expertise in creating detailed and accurate financial models for wind projects. IWE is meticulous about all aspects of the financial model, with an emphasis on modeling uncertainties.
Forte of IWE is Bankable Wind Resource Assessment. IWE uses the best science in the wind industry to create bankable wind assessment.
Uncertainty in wind measurement is one of the largest sources of uncertainty in a bankable resource assessment.
Wind developers rely on IWE Prospecting Services to significantly lower the risk of wind projects even before met-towers have been installed.
Gamesa has installed a 2 MW prototype hybrid system with 850 kW of wind, 245 kW of solar PV, 3x222 of diesel genset and 429-kilowatt/500-kilowatt-hour of lithium-ion.
LBNL reported the following comparative performance numbers for wind turbines. The comparison is between 1998-99 and 2015:
- Average capacity of WTG has increased by 180%
I thought I would never see a flywheel with 4 hours of energy storage. Amber Kinetics has managed to develop a 6.25 kW flywheel with 29 kWh of energy storage.
Vestas has introduced onshore wind turbines with hub height of 166m. It is the V126-3.45MW model. They also offer hub heights of 87m, 117m, 137m, 147m and 149m.
I just saw an innovative concept from GE: Storage of water below the wind turbine. Details are not very clear, but it looks like, there will be a 40m tall water storage unit below the wind turbine.
