Greensolver’s Blog : news on solar and wind energy

Happy holidays!

2017 has been another great year for us, and we would like to thank you for the continued confidence you put in us over this past year and for all the wind & solar successes we have achieved together with you. We are looking forward to continue along this path in ...

Wind farm: blade’s leading edges erosion

As its name suggests, the leading edge is the blade’s part which enters first in contact with the wind. Therefore, it is naturally the most vulnerable part towards environment’s stress. Every wind turbine located in an environment that includes abrasive particles like...

Solar PV: price & technology evolution

Solar PV: price & technology evolution

With the cost reduction battle carried out during the last 15 years (mainly due to the massive introduction of the Chinese solar products in the market), solar energy has now become a very competitive energy source. We estimate that prices have reduced by more than...

SDE+ Autumn 2017 – Greensolver forecast

Since 2008 about 29,500 projects have been rewarded with subsidy allowing The Netherlands to develop its capacity in terms of renewable energy production. With the 2020 objectives getting closer, rounds of SDE+ have become larger and budget have been increased by 33%...

Technical Management Contracts

As technical expert and manager of more than 860 MW of wind & solar assets, we would like to emphasize the importance of having a technical expert who will take away the burden of daily operation of your assets by managing both the technical and commercial sides....

Operating wind farm performance analysis

Technical management of a wind asset is a tedious work which requires not only to supervise the wind asset production, but also to analyze the turbine performances in order to detect if the turbine is under or over performing. Data analysis is key when managing a wind...

Serration design or the art of reducing wind farm noise

The noise of a wind turbine is estimated to reach about 55 decibels being at its foot (a car is estimated to be 80 decibels). Though acoustic is still one of the big challenge for the industry and a main risk for projects under development. In some areas, due to the...

Why active filters are to be used in a wind energy asset?

We have often seen cases when an active filter had to be installed during operation of a wind farm. This article aims to demonstrate their purpose and benefits. From high voltage centers, grid operators use a remote system to amend the tariff in energy meters. When a...
