As RNRG’s markets have expanded into more than 150 countries, so too has our network of dealers. Located on every continent, RNRG dealers have the regional knowledge to help guide customers through each stage of their renewable energy project—from choosing the right equipment for their climate to sorting out local regulations.
“The work you are doing matters. I actually don’t want to take up much of your time, because you guys need to get back at it.”
It’s not every day that one of the world’s leading climate activists stops by your office and says that your day job matters. But we were lucky to have Bill McKibben, author, environmentalist, and founder of 350.org, visit the RNRG headquarters on July 14th.
Despite the maturation and widespread use of Lidars in the wind energy industry, we continue to hear common misconceptions related to the technology. This list contains the 10 most common myths about wind Lidar and the true story behind them.
The nacelle-mounted Wind Iris Lidar is one of the most intriguing new technologies in the wind industry. But what, exactly, can it do?
We have some exciting news: SOH Wind Engineering, LLC (SOH WE) has obtained MEASNET certification for their wind tunnel in Williston, Vermont. Located less than nine miles from our headquarters, this tunnel opened in early 2013 in response to our request for local calibration services.
You know that the profitability of your wind farm depends on the performance of each turbine. Minor errors in yaw misalignment, blade pitch, and tip-speed ratio can affect power output and overall energy production. But how do you know when these issues are lurking on your project site?
Recently, two Renewable NRG Systems employees traveled to Hempstead, N.Y., to install a Wind Iris Lidar on a Northern Power Systems wind turbine. From their post on the small nacelle platform, Evan Osler and Alban Jehu could see planes taking off from JFK Airport just a few miles in the distance.
Despite the ups and downs that the wind industry has experienced in recent years, Renewable NRG Systems has worked hard to maintain a focus on employee wellness—something that we believe is core to our success as a company.
Renewable NRG Systems tilt-up towers are built to withstand extreme weather conditions, from ice storms, to marine climates, to extreme heat. With proper maintenance, they will stand for many years. Still, they need occasional TLC to sustain top performance.
Do you suspect that you have underperforming wind turbines? Are you familiar with the causes and consequences of yaw misalignment?
