Wind energy makes a valuable contribution to a sustainable energy future. By using this regenerative form of energy, fossil fuels can be replaced. A modern wind turbine generates electricity for around 2,500 households, without pollutants, exhaust gases and waste – it enables savings of around 4,000 tonnes of CO2 per year compared to conventional electricity generation.

To date, the Energiewerkstatt has carried out over 300 wind measurements in sometimes impassable terrain and under challenging climatic conditions throughout Europe and beyond. Based on this, potential analyses (feasibility studies, approval planning, due diligences) and expert opinions (shadow casting, icefall risk, fire risk, wind zones, machine breakage) form the basis for further services such as detailed planning and ultimately the successful construction and operation of the wind turbines.

Precision in advance

Wind measurement

The base for every reliable yield forecast is our precise wind measurement. With site-specific measurement concepts, we offer the highest possible data availability and thus planning reliability:

  • Measuring masts up to 180 m
  • Measuring masts for sites with icing conditions
  • LIDAR and SODAR Measurements
  • Class 1 measuring instruments
  • Customised external power supply systems
 

Over 300 measurement projects around the globe underline our expertise in wind measurement.

Solid theory and practical know-how

Expert opinions, statements and studies

For the preparation of expert reports, we combine site-specific knowledge with meteorological measurements and data from existing wind turbines. A verification of theoretical results by empirical values from practice are part of our evaluations. We prepare

  • Bankable energy yield reports (optionally based on CFD simulations)
  • Wind zone assessments
  • Extreme wind assessments for the purpose of site safety
  • Noise and shadow assessments
  • Icefall and ice throw assessments for risk evaluation
  • Fire risk assessments, machine breakage assessments
  • Feasibility studies, profitability analyses, project assessments (due diligences)
Headwind? No problem!

Planning, project development

We are just as happy to carry out an environmental impact assessment (EIA) for large wind farms as we are to plan the approval of a single turbine. In addition to technical planning services, we also support our clients with further services in the course of project development. This includes the entire project coordination including communication with all stakeholders and quality assurance for your project.

  • Draft planning to clarify legal and technical requirements
  • Design, rezoning and EIS/material planning
  • Submission and approval planning
  • Colludation

Within the scope of realisation, clients benefit from our decades of experience – of course we also take over the construction coordination.

In the planning, approval and implementation of wind energy projects, we can refer to numerous references in Austria, Italy, Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania.

Applied research that benefits all sides

Research

For 30 years now, Energiewerkstatt has acted as initiator, coordinator and collaborator of national and international research projects in the field of wind energy. We incorporate our know-how from practice into this – application-oriented – research.

Conversely, our involvement in research projects enables us to participate directly in scientific developments. This enables us to offer our customers state-of-the-art solutions.

  • Focus on risk analyses
  • Focus on potential assessments
  • Focus on complex terrain
  • Focus on icing
