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 various technical factors such as the wind speed distribution, the wind turbine hub height, rotor diameter, wake effects and the efficiency and availability of the wind farm. If you, a company or entrepreneur in the wind energy industry, understand these factors, you can reduce both your project costs and risks in order to improve your chance of success.
I act as an interface between technology and management - and support you to develop your technical capabilities, to make competent management decisions and in business development in the area of wind energy.
Modular seminars and lectures on all topics relating to wind energy technology. Open events as well as in-house events - tailor-made just for you designed to get you fit for wind energy!
Problem-solving workshops and independent evaluations of wind resource assessments & technical studies as well as support for investors.
Strategy and business development, feasibility studies, data analysis for management reports and much more.
I have an M.Eng. (Cambridge University, MIT) and Ph.D. (Sheffield University) in Mechanical Engineering as well as ten years' international wind energy and management experience both in research (ETH Zurich, Fraunhofer IWES) and in industry (BKW FMB AG, Agile Wind Power AG). I speak English (mother tongue), German and Swiss German fluently.
I also offer ISO certified individual, business and academia coaching as well as unique workshops and talks under my other brand name, mindspire.
Energy production data comparison for wind farms in Italy
Assessment of three diverging opinions on a wind farm in Portugal
Moderation of a workshop „The role of Canton Thurgau in further planning of wind energy projects“
