Are you currently involved in Wind Energy projects? Or are you searching for a career in the wind energy industry? Or have you already worked in this sector and want to be up to date on the latest developments in the field? This live training is for you!
This course provides stakeholders of wind energy projects, including developers and investors, with the key drivers of successful wind energy projects. These topics range from project development and planning challenges, resource evaluation and complexity of energy generation to technology trends, financial returns, and financial project risks.
What you will learn?
- Learn from Noviron’s reputed wind energy experts and access wealth of multinational experience in wind power project development
- Understand the volatile properties of wind power, and how these can be translated into a financial risk analysis
- Be up to date on the latest wind technology innovations and how these fit into an actual business case
- Understand wind power project delivery risks and the stakeholders involved
- Learn to work with a financial model and better oversee the variables that influence risk and returns
- A clear comparison between the differences between onshore and offshore wind projects
How it works?
