    Advancements in Wind Technology: Increasing efficiency

    Panel Hydrogen/Clean Tech & Power Power & Renewables

    Wind energy is expected to play an important role in world decarbonization efforts. However, as subsidies are wound down, there is pressure to reduce the cost of energy rapidly and sustainably. Continuous technology innovation has emerged as a key driver for this, not just at the equipment level, but encompassing the broader value chain including manufacturing processes, asset ownership, supply chain, and wind farm design. What will the future of wind technology look like? Can technology continue to play a key role in driving efficiency gains and improving the competitiveness of wind energy?
