There is nothing “plug and play” about a wind-energy facility. They are inherently dynamic and complex power plants—and peak performance hinges on a choreographed mix of technicians in the field, 24/7 monitoring and data analysis, and staff who can effectively accommodate the dynamic requirements and inputs of grid operators, system owners, turbine manufacturers, and others. In this session, we’ll learn about the qualifications, characteristics, and training that yield outstanding operators and analysts, and share tips on creating a corporate culture that turns data into discovery—and additional revenue.
