Owing to rapid growth in solar and wind capacity, the US is on track to generate 24% of its energy from renewables by the end of this year, with further increases driven by federal policy that seeks to create a net-zero emissions economy by 2050. These aggressive goals depend, in part, on the ability of renewable energy operators to maximize operational efficiency and production. In this era of widespread digital transformation and the IIoT, renewable assets generate vast amounts of data, but providers are challenged with transforming raw data into actionable insights that drive operational excellence.

Additionally, energy operators are increasingly diversifying the kinds of assets in their fleets, often managing a mix of wind, solar, and battery storage assets simultaneously under the same project. While there are some synergies between these different asset types, optimizing the performance of a mixed fleet is challenging. In this webinar, you’ll learn how AI has played a critical role in the day-to-day operations of 8.5 GW of wind, solar, and battery storage assets under management, and how your company can:

• Improve operational efficiency with more accurate production forecasting

• Eliminate wind energy loss due to yaw variance and pitch-bearing failures

• Increase solar production with enhanced O&M practices to detect soiling and panel misalignment

• Boost profitability with capacity loss optimization of battery energy storage systems

Register now to discover what other operators are doing to get the most out of their renewable assets and how you can gain a competitive advantage.
