Wind energy is a fast growing industry in North America and around the world. According to Canadian Wind Energy Association, today, there are over 150,000 wind turbines operating around the world in over 90 countries.
Professionals working in the energy industry as well as companies wishing to broaden their technical activities in renewable energy must have a solid comprehension of how much energy exists in the wind, how it is harnessed and if a wind project is profitable.
This course is designed for industry professionals and covers most of the technical aspects of harnessing wind energy in a wind farm. It includes resource assessment, today’s turbines technology, wind power generation and difference with conventional generation, costs and project evaluation, as well as operations and maintenance.
