The way we produce and consume energy globally is changing. Over the next decade, the energy mix will undergo a significant shift at both a supranational and domestic level as we work towards a cleaner future.
By 2030, the offshore wind power market is expected to be worth £30 billion per year. Fast forward to 2050 and the industry is projected to contribute to at least a third of the total global electricity supply.
While this is great news for power generation companies, recent research has showed that the costs associated with maintaining wind farms will double between 2015 and 2020.
To secure its place in the future energy mix, protecting a wind turbines value and output through effective maintenance will prove critical to achieving a competitive edge.
There are steps that can be taken now, to reduce maintenance costs today and keep them lower in the future.
