Leveraging advanced polyurethane resins and coatings to develop high-performance wind turbine blades

whitePaper | April 1, 2022

Covestro has applied its industrial expertise in high-tech polymer materials to develop innovative polyurethane (PU) solutions for wind turbine applications that offer performance benefits and lower blade costs. To evaluate the impact of our PU solutions for rotor blade applications, Covestro commissioned bewind GmbH, a specialist wind engineering consultancy company, to simulate the costs and benefits of these solutions in terms of production, operational performance, and turbine lifetime. The company evaluated three of our PU products: a pultrusion resin, an infusion resin, and coating raw materials for leading edge protection (LEP). The aim was to quantify the impact of Covestro polyurethane solutions compared to standard alternative products used on a typical offshore wind farm.

Electricity Resource Compensation Under a NetZero Future

whitePaper | September 15, 2022

Over the past decade, state governments, local municipalities, and large corporations have increased momentum for the adoption of net zero carbon policies, and with the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act in August 2022 that will provide hundreds of billions of dollars of investment in clean energy, that net zero carbon future now looks more achievable. E3 has been at the forefront of analyzing possible decarbonization pathways across North America. While there are multiple potential pathways on the road to net zero, it will ultimately result in a fundamental shift over time from an era of dominated by fossil fuel generation resources to one dominated by renewables, energy storage, and demand-side resources. This will result in a major transformation in how electricity markets function.

Is your organization’s journey to net zero headed down thewrong path? Here’s the sustainability safety net to get you back on track.

whitePaper | December 11, 2022

Most companies run into significant challenges on the path to net zero. Many cannot get a handle on their current sustainability performance because it’s hard to aggregate data from a myriad of sources. Others are so overwhelmed with the financials, they freeze on their path to net zero or, worse yet, they never start. Even large businesses may struggle to make upgrades to bolster their buildings’ energy efficiency or afford expensive new equipment and smart building technology. Instead, immediate budgetary needs, like paying employee salaries and product development, take precedent.
