Getting airborne – the need to realize the benefits of airborne wind energy for net zero

September 20, 2022

Getting airborne – the need to
Airborne wind energy (AWE) is wind 2.0 – a game-changing solution accessing the large untapped wind resource potential at heights above those accessed by established wind technology. It enables more energy to be extracted at lower carbon intensity and eventually at lower cost. Europe and other areas in the world need to access all viable natural resources they can, and AWE, alongside established wind technology, should be considered as one of the key solutions to our energy
decarbonisation challenge.

Foundry For Renewables

whitePaper | July 31, 2022

Changes in climate and energy policy paired with shifts in supply and demand are causing disruptions to energy systems across the globe. Renewable energy generation is at the core of this transition. Investing and empowering the energy sector to sustainably optimize performance, production, and scale must become a transformational effort to innovate for the future. Data is at the heart of this revolution. Renewable power generation is highly dependent on weather and site conditions, which are everchanging, and the process outputs large-scale data that is often difficult to integrate, visualize, or leverage.

Offshore wind business feasibility in a flexible and electrified Dutch energy market by 2030

whitePaper | November 15, 2022

Offshore wind is the primary supplier of CO2-free electricity moving towards decarbonising the Dutch power system. The installed capacity aims to increase sevenfold to 21.5 GW by 2030. However, the current market trends of increasing renewable capacity, industrial electrification, gas and CO2 prices, the expansion of interconnection, and the need for grid reinforcements are making the power market more volatile. These trends, together with the phasing out of subsidies, result in increasing the risks for offshore wind business.
