This talk will present a review of wind farm engineering through project examples and will be short on theory but long on experience. It will discuss the good, the bad and the ugly of Neil’s wind farm experience over the years and will hopefully provide a useful summary of some of the engineering challenges associated with wind turbine developments.
Neil’s involvement in wind farm engineering began in 1989 when he was asked by Ecogen, a Cornwall based renewable energy developer, to advise on some of the first wind farms to be constructed in the United Kingdom. Since then he has assisted and worked with some of the largest players in the renewables sector both in the U.K. and overseas.
His wind farm experience has covered a range of activities including engineering consultancy, wind farm planning, expert witness services, development activities, project procurement, and asset management. He has been responsible for advising on schemes in many countries including the U.K., the rest of Europe, North Africa, North America and the Indian subcontinent. Nearly 30 years on he still works with renewables projects and has recently been advising a start-up company which develops schemes for battery energy storage systems linked to renewable energy generation.
