Wind power is meant to cover 12% of EU’s energy demand, making a key impact on the European energy transition to renewable energies. The WindEurope Summit 2016 put together the main companies and key players in the sector in a three-day event in Hamburg, in September 2016. Personalities like Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency, or Jos Delbeke, Director-General for Climate Action in the European Comission, took part on the event, that included many speeches and a space for each of the key companies in the wind power sector, including Smartive, to express their business developments and build strong partnerships to push in this energy transition.
WindEurope describes three main important points in this transition: right policies, innovation and a fully integrated energy system. In innovation, the first key point is reducing costs of wind energy generation. Jordi Cusidó (CEO), Isaac Justícia (COO) and Alicia Andúgar (CCO) exposed the methods used by Smartive to reduce O&M costs, making wind turbines more efficient.
Citing Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope:
“Digitalization; governments all over Europe are talking about it a lot, but they don’t know exactly what it means. It’s a hard job to explain to them how digitalization of wind can help reduce the costs of wind energy and make wind energy more effective and more efficient.”
