Wind power is currently the cheapest source of large-scale renewable energy.
Wind energy offers many advantages, which explains why it’s one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the world.
Wind farms are created when multiple wind turbines are placed in the same location for the purpose of generating large amounts of electric power. Due to rising energy prices and the resultant search for alternatives, there are now thousands of wind farms in many countries around the world.
The wind emits no toxic substances, creates no waste, does not pollute our water. Wind turbines do not need any conventional fuel to generate electricity. Wind energy is plentiful and readily available, and capturing its power does not deplete our valuable natural resources, and more importantly helps counter the detrimental effects of climate change.
Wind power is cost effective. It is one of the lowest-priced renewable energy technologies available today, costing between four and six cents per kilowatt-hour, depending upon the wind resource and project financing of the particular project.
The price of modern turbines is in the range between 700 and 1000 euros per installed kW. The cost of wind turbines and wind plants has fallen substantially during the last fifteen years, and this trend is continuing. Energy prices have fallen even faster, due to lower wind turbine costs, higher efficiency and availability, and lower operation and maintenance costs.
We cover the entire project lifecycle, from initial appraisal and feasibility studies and design and concept development, through to implementation. Our experience includes civil and structural engineering, geotechnical and environmental engineering, environmental impact assessment, contract services, health and safety services and mechanical and electrical engineering services.
We understand the key engineering, commercial and environmental challenges of onshore wind development and construction, both in mature wind energy markets and new emerging wind energy markets.
We are committed to delivering wind energy solutions that enable economic growth while preserving the environment and protecting the world’s natural resources.
