The only medium that is fast enough to keep pace with this ever faster turning wheel is the internet. That is why SUN & WIND ENERGY has started to relaunch its website www.sunwindenergy.com. Starting in January, you will find reports from industry insiders, from researchers and developers who will allow for some insights into their workspace. There will be more news from gigawatt markets as well as from new and developing ones, from established companies as well as from start-ups.

DNV GL announces its latest Joint Industry Project (JIP), aiming to optimize the performance of wind farms by reducing the downtime and lower the costs of energy during the operational project life span of 25 years or more.

ECN, KNMI and Whiffle are working on a new atlas featuring accurate information about North Sea winds for use in wind energy applications. Clarity with regard to the average amount of wind and how often wind speeds reach extreme levels will enable a more accurate estimate of how much wind energy you can generate and how robust wind turbines need to be made to prevent damage or failure. Greater certainty about the potential performance of your wind farm also makes it possible to secure cheaper loans from investors. This reduces the cost of offshore wind energy, a key target set by the Dutch government.
