ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America's leading energy consulting firms, is featured in the latest issue of North American Clean Energy magazine. This article, featured in the September/October issue, provides insight on lessons learned in operational excellence from conventional generation and discusses the best approach to a success path for wind operators.
"The North American wind industry has reached an inflection point. No longer a small but growing part of the electricity mix, wind has reached a scale that calls for a greater focus on how the fleet is operated and maintained. For the past 15 years, the key to success has been primarily driven by development: the ability to bring the project to completion with OEM support. As warranties expire and more wind generation operators choose to insource operations and maintenance (O&M), the key to success in the future will be increasingly derived from the quality of the operations and maintenance of the generating assets," wrote Todd Williams, partner and fossil practice co-leader at ScottMadden.
