The BVGA October newsletter is now available. This month it features our Vattenfall’s Vesterhaven costs, LM acquisition news, the event presentations we’ve recently delivered and much more. You can read it it full here.

The onshore wind industry in the UK is getting to the end of its teenage years, and we are starting to see signs of new activity in the ‘subsidy free’ world. Many turbines are also coming to the end of their teenage years, and we are actively working in lifetime extension of projects. We have been helping to re-locate old turbines and exploring the relative benefits of different extension strategies compared to repowering and decommissioning.

The progress to a subsidy-free world is being helped by developing technology delivering a big reduction in cost of energy. It’s worth reading a recent article in the Guardian newspaper about Kite Power Solutions and see what Bill Gates has to say about airborne wind, too. We think that the technology is well worth progressing.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the BVGA October 2016 newsletter – just drop us an email with your thoughts and what you would like more of from us in future editions and we’ll do our best to include them.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
