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.
Wind power has grown tremendously in the Philippines. The Energy Regulatory Commission started with a feed-in tariff (lets call it FIT-1) of P8.53 with quota of 200 MW. This quota was exhausted q
Between May 7 and 11, wind and hydro contributed about 45% each of the total domestic demand of 632.7GWh. Rest of the demand was provided by solar and biomass.
I am directly quoting from this very informative article:
Tesla's gigafactory will have rooftop solar, wind power plant (no details on how big) and geoexchange (geothermal) heat pump.
Following are general rule of thumb for RE projects:
1. Utility scale wind projects: 7.5 to 10 MW per Sq. Km.
2. Utility scale solar PV projects: 30MW per Sq. Km.
