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.
In the latest 1,000 MW wind auction conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), the lowest bids were Rs 2.64 (USD 0.0404) per kWh by ReNew for 250 MW and Orange for 200 MW. To round
In Kauai island of Hawaii, AES is installing 28 MW of solar PV with 20 MW/100 MWh of battery for $0.11/kWh. In 2015, 13 MW solar PV with 52 MWh battery from SolarCity was signed for $0.145/kWh.
GE has published a good website with all the resources related to enhancing asset performance.
US Energy Information Administration (US-EIA) reported that for the first time in about 40 years, transportation sector emitted more CO2 than the power sector.
We have always wondered if RE plants can provide frequency and voltage support to the grid, First Solar is making the case:
Yesterday, the Block Island wind farm off the coast of Rhode Island was commissioned and started powering homes in the island.
