Windpower Engineering & Development

"A large renewable-energy company applied recently developed data-mining software to uncover how much it lost during curtailments and found the sum exceeded six figures. But showing its ISO the figures based on solid data, Avangrid Renewables (formerly Iberdrola Renewables) was able to reclaim $30,000 to $100,000 per year based on the ISO contract, wind curtailment, and wind availability.

According to Brandon Lake, formerly a Senior Business Systems Analyst at Avangrid Renewables, the software took only 45 minutes to learn how to apply and access over 250,000 tags (a sensor endpoint) to start getting the answers and insights he was looking for. This is a significant improvement, he said, over many competing solutions."
