  • Seeking a data model to match turbine advances

    With turbines becoming more innovative, how can developers collect accurate wind data that is centered around lower heights and limited points of measurement? In order to sustain wind power’s leadership in renewable energy, developers and operators will need to build and manage wind farms that deliver competitive results over the long term. The most important driver of wind farm ...


  • Your electric meter: A villain or hero?

    Before energy became a hot topic, no one cared about the electric meter.  It was the box on the house we all ignored except the guy from the utility who dodged the barking dogs to take a reading from it once in awhile. It is a sign of our times that this box now inspires enough emotion for people to take to the streets. Protesters gathered outside the California Public Utilities Commission ...
