Empowering you to truly understand wind energy

Empowering you to truly understand wind energy


 

I'M HERE TO HELP

Wind energy is an essential part of the worldwide energy mix for today and for the future. The success of a wind energy project is dependent on many technical factors such as the wind speed distribution, the wind turbine hub height, rotor diameter, wake effects and the efficiency/availability of the wind farm.

If you, a company or entrepreneur in the wind energy industry, wish to be successful in today's highly competitive environment, you need to have an in-depth understanding of these factors!!!

  • If you do not fully understand your data, you cannot maximise the energy production and minimise the costs of your planned or operating wind energy projects!
  • If you do not fully understand the basics of wind energy technology, you cannot make competent decisions, negotiate credibly or evaluate external assessments!
  • If you do not have a good understanding or a concise overview of the state-of-the-art wind energy technology, you cannot effectively develop and expand your business ideas and new innovations!

I'm here to help - with my unique combination of more than ten years' experience in R&D and management in the wind energy industry as well as my outstanding communication skills.

About me


About me


I have an M.Eng. (Cambridge University, MIT) and Ph.D. (Sheffield University) in Mechanical Engineering as well as over ten years' international wind energy and management experience both in research (ETH Zurich, Fraunhofer IWES, University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil) and in industry (BKW FMB AG, Agile Wind Power AG). I speak English (mother tongue), German and Swiss German fluently. I currently lead the wind energy programme at the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil two days a week and hold a lectureship in wind energy at the University of Kassel.

Sarah did a great job in her time working in my division. With her technical understanding of wind turbines, her very structured and results-focused attitude and her customer orientation, she built up an internationally-accredited team for wind energy field measurements in a very short amount of time.
— Prof. Dr. Hans-Gerd Busmann: Head of Division, Fraunhofer IWES, Bremerhaven (Germany)
Sarah presents complicated technical topics in easy to understand words and pictures superbly.
— Patrick Zehnder, CEO HelveticWind (Switzerland)
It’s always a great pleasure to work together with Sarah. She impresses me with her passion, analytical mind and system understanding of wind turbines.
— Prof. Henry Seifert, University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven (Germany)
