IWE has in-depth expertise in digitalization of the power sector, through various client projects in these areas: Digital substation and IEC 61850 standards, smart grid, demand response, digitalization of system operations, renewable energy generation forecasting, FACTS and others.  

Renewable energy projects can have a significant impact, especially as the penetration of RE grows in the grid.  We have expertise in grid integration studies using DIgSILENT, Plexos and SAM for understanding the impact of RE on static and dynamic stability of the grid, dispatchablity of conventional generation and production cost.

Forte of IWE is Bankable Wind Resource Assessment.  IWE uses the best science in the wind industry to create bankable wind assessments. We have in-depth expertise in creating detailed and accurate financial models for wind projects. We are meticulous about all aspects of the financial model, with an emphasis on modeling uncertainties.

Development of RE Zones is a cost-effective way to accelerate the development of Renewable Energy projects.  IWE utilizes GIS-based modeling tools and multi-criteria approach to identifying the most attractive RE Zones based on resource density, cost of transmission build, cost of logistics and non-overlap with environmentally sensitive areas.
