I am on the plane returning from the New Energy Update Conference in Munich and a number of themes are spinning through my head. The conference was divided into Wind, Solar and Energy Storage tracks. During the conference I tried to catch what I thought was most interesting on the three different tracks and here are my reflections.
DNV GL just released their Energy Transition Outlook. Interestingly enough it is not scenario based as many reports are, but rather 'a most likely future'. The key take away from the report for a company like ours: Wind and solar going from 1 TW to 25 TW in 2050, a CAGR close to 10% over 35 years.
London-based Atlantica Yield has chosen Breeze system for wind farm management. Atlantica Yield owns, manages and acquires a diversified portfolio of contracted assets in the power and environment sectors.
Switzerland-based green power producer aventron, has chosen the Breeze Wind Farm Management system for wind farm monitoring, reporting and analysis. aventron specializes in the acquisition and the operation of small scale wind, solar and hydro power generation assets in Europe.
With many of our customers moving into solar we are now expanding our product portfolio into solar photovoltaics with the launch of Bright. Last week I spent two days in San Francisco at the Solar Asset Management conference to learn more about asset management of solar photovoltaics and what it means to our customers and products from a data perspective.
Wind farm owner and operator Eurowatt in France has chosen the Breeze Wind Farm Management system for wind turbine monitoring, reporting and analysis. The Eurowatt Group is one of France’s leading independent suppliers of renewable energy. The company covers all phases in wind power projects – from wind farm development and construction to operation and management.
Today we are very happy to announce the launch of new feature called Alarms. It will help our customers produce more electricity. Alarms will decrease the time from a problem occurring to a problem being identified. At the same time Alarms decrease owners' and operators' dependence on the turbine manufacturer.
