After working with RNRG for more than eight years, Harness Energy knows our products inside and out. Based in Denver, Colorado (U.S.), Harness provides meteorological measurement field services to renewable energy developers and operators across the U.S. and internationally.
With our short summers here in Vermont, we're superstitious about uttering the "w" word in August. But the truth is that it was winter here not long ago. If you're craving some snowy scenes (or simply want to see cool drone footage), check out this video of our 60m XHD TallTower™ being lifted in the field at the RNRG headquarters.
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 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.
Do you suspect that you have underperforming wind turbines? Are you familiar with the causes and consequences of yaw misalignment?
KB Energy, owned by Keith and Lois Broyles, is a North American-based company specializing in tilt-up meteorological tower services, including installations, decommissions, refits, and repairs. In total, we have installed over 1,700 towers, including a recently completed installation in Alaska. It was the most difficult—and the most satisfying—installation that we’ve ever done.
We’re excited to announce that WindSensor has released an updated classification report for the WindSensor P2546-OPR class 1 anemometer. Classification is used broadly in the wind industry to formally characterize an anemometer’s operational uncertainty. In other words, it indicates how effectively a sensor measures wind speed.
First Wind recently purchased a Wind Iris Lidar to optimize the performance of its wind turbines. This decision was the result of a successful field trial that used data from the nacelle-mounted Lidar to increase the total energy production of a turbine.
It was a breezy evening on Lake Champlain, and the sun was sinking behind the blue and gunmetal gray Adirondack Mountains. Inside the ECHO Science Center, we gathered at round tables to celebrate the 2013 Terry Ehrich Award for Excellence in Socially Responsible Business. Jan Blomstrann, Renewable NRG Systems' president and CEO, was the honoree.
