The Government of Guyana's Public Infrastructure Minister Mr David Patterson reported to the national assembly on renewable energy projects.
INNOVATIVE WIND ENERGY, INC.
IWE conducted a grid integration study for Sumba. It was a collaboration with NREL and Winrock.
The following publication has been released by NREL.
Presented Overview of Regional and Global Wind Energy Policy at the second Indonesia Wind Energy Forum in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is organized by WhypGEN and GEF.
IWE presented the Sumba wind resource assessment and preliminary financial assessment at the 9th Plenary meeting in Surabaya, Indonesia from November 4 to 6, 2015.
IWE has been contracted to conduct a wind measurement campaign in Guyana.
Quantum Leap in Wind Power Development in Asia and the Pacific (QLW) commissioned three wind measurement met-masts in Sri Lanka in early 2015.

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.
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.
Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) has selected 300 MW of wind power in a reverse auction with an average price of C$0.0859/kWh.
One of the oldest wind farms in US, Altamont pass wind project, is being partly repowered and partly decommissioned.
The following is useful data about wind energy in US in 2015:
