A structured approach to the identification of production losses and process waste on a single renewable asset or a portfolio of assets. It uses Yield (e.g. the percentage of wind captured from the wind available (also taking into account the expected power curve of the WTG) as its key metric and attempts to categorise and classify the various losses. We then map the losses to best practice techniques to identify a suitable combination of initiatives that will provide the greatest improvement to Yield.
Value improvement Programmes normally have multiple metrics that constitute value for the customer – Yield can be one of them. In addition to this, we also use cost driver analysis to understand and categorise all aspects of cost associated with wind farm Operations, Maintenance and Asset Management and then develop strategies for reducing it without compromising yield or safety.
