A new application called Wind expert brings together a large range of wind turbine products, and allows calculating wind farm performance and a financial analysis. The app or software features a database of links to relevant associations, toolkits, government incentives and in-depth market reports.
The app was created Michael Blaize, an engineer who has spent time in the wind industry. He says it is an useful tool for wind energy professionals, and an companion for renewable energy students and enthusiasts. Blaize says the software assists decision-making and boosts a wind project return on investment.
He says there is a sense of secrecy about the performance of wind energy. Manufacturers tend to present their product specifications in different formats and use different performance measures. As a result, comparing products from different manufacturers can be difficult. He has collected this information in a consistent format, integrated with key energy and financial metrics tailored to particular sites.
The app is available at the appStore at a reduced launch price (20% off) for $11.99. WPE
