ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America's leading energy consulting firms, will soon join wind energy thought leaders as a speaker at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) WINDPOWER conference being held May 23-26 in New Orleans, LA. This leading annual event gathers thousands of professionals from all major segments in the industry, bringing together policy makers and thought leaders for collaboration.


At this event, Todd Williams, partner at ScottMadden, will discuss the concept of a playbook or model for effective management. Wind operators will learn how to leverage scale by adopting leading practices across their asset base using a proven model deployed by many large, conventional generation fleets. Additionally, ScottMadden will display a poster in the AWEA poster hall highlighting a case study where we helped one wind operator apply the concepts of a playbook to their wind safety function.

"The value of a generation fleet can be greater than the sum of its individual generation assets. Top performance is not automatic or self-sustaining, it needs a mechanism for continuous improvement. We believe that given the size of the U.S. wind fleet, wind generation has reached an inflection point, and owners can benefit from implementing an operational playbook," said Mr. Williams.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
