A comprehensive, up-to-date and business-focused roadmap to success in delivering wind power growth, today and tomorrow.
Attendees will gain an excellent understanding of all the key factors facing wind power developers and investors, from resource
assessment and energy production complexities, through technology trends, project development and planning challenges, to
financial returns and risks.
The course will include the illustration of key concepts using online tools, wind resource datasets, energy yield, financial and other
simple calculations, along with discussion of key planning and market environment considerations.
In keeping with the business-focused theme of the course, any illustrative materials are designed to provide time-efficient clarification
of the key course takeaways, aimed at commercially-focused business developers and investors. They are therefore accessible to
non-experts, not designed to replicate the complex or in-depth detailed planning undertaken – over much longer periods – by
experienced engineers and technical teams.
