Invited to deliver keynote on RE grid integration at the Vibrant Gujarat Summit
Honored to present our work on wind energy zones to the Minister and the State Secretary of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Moldova. The work was done as part of USAID's Moldova Energy Security Activity.
Visited the top eleven wind energy zones that were developed by IWE under the USAID MESA project. Site visits we done Oct 19-25, 2023.
Proud to announce the publication of our article in the Applied Solar Energy journal.
Conducted a workshop on Aug 21-23, 2023 in Makassar on best practices in strategic planning for renewable energy power procurement.

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.

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.
