Natural Power has now reached a total of 14 fully certified users of the widely used WAsP software.

Leading international renewable energy consultancy group Natural Power has now reached a total of 14 fully certified users of the widely used WAsP software. WAsP (the Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program) is the wind energy industry's standard software for performing wind flow modelling and analysis for wind farm energy yield assessments in non-complex flow environments.


The number of certified WAsP users employed by Natural Power is the largest of any international wind energy consultancy, and is second overall only to Ris DTU in Denmark, the developers and distributors of the WAsP software. Natural Power's WAsP certified wind analysts are located in the UK, France and the US.

Neil Douglas, Technical Director of Natural Power, commented: "Natural Power has been registering WAsP users since 1996 and we apply the software on client projects worldwide. This is in addition to providing industry leading flow modelling solutions in complex flow environments through the application of our VENTOS Complex Fluid Dynamics service. The fact that our wind resource experts are fully WAsP certified by Ris DTU is an achievement that we are proud of. Having our wind analysts obtain this certification displays our continued commitment to providing our clients with industry leading expertise, and also to the continued professional development of our staff.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
