Natural Power takes the floor at AWEA Wind Project O&M and Safety Conference 2016

As Natural Power has just released the results of its latest North American wind energy validation study, the team gets set to speak at the forthcoming AWEA event in San Diego.

Natural Powers President and Senior Vice President in North America are set to take to the floor at the AWEA O&M and Safety Conference - Leveraging Technology: Taking O&M and Safety to the Next Level, which is being hosted at Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego, California on February 8 - 10.

Jim Adams, President, Natural Power North America, will chair the session ‘Operational strategies by ownership type - drivers, dynamics and nuances on February 10, 8:30am - 9:45am. This session will explore the perspectives of various project owners, their priorities, and how they plant operations based upon many often competing variables.
Holly Hughes, Senior Vice President, will present ‘Breaking through the OEM filter: A real-world case study on independent data collection and monitoring on February 9, 11:10am - 12:10pm, along with co-presenter Mike Hornemann of Romax.
The timing of these presentations is apt as earlier this month Natural Power released the results of its latest validation study - an evaluation of North American pre-construction wind energy yield predictions by comparison to operational production - demonstrating 99.1% accuracy for project analysis.
The teams attendance at AWEA provides a platform for them to share their real-life know how and technical ability that has been developed over the years as well as through their delivery of the most recent independent inspection service and operational project and portfolio assessments.
Jim Adams, said: "AWEA is host to some of the best events in the North American wind industry. As always, we are delighted to be presenting our latest research and sharing our perspectives with our peers at an important time for the industry."

S-5!® PVKIT™ 2.0 Solar Rooftop Solutions

The concept of combining PV arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing-for good reasons. Metal roofs have a life expectancy of more than 40 years. Shouldn't the mounting system last as long? With S-5! zero-penetration attachment technology and PVKIT 2.0, the solarized metal roof is the most sustainable system available -and without compromising roof warranties! PVKIT 2.0 is the also the best solution for attaching PV modules directly to any exposed fastener metal roof.
