AI for Renewables: 4 Ways to Successfully Scale a Diverse Fleet

AIRED ON: September 15, 2022

Webinar Summary

By 2030, the US will produce 24% of its energy from renewables, and the White House is working to create a net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050. These goals rely largely on renewable energy companies to analyze, optimize, and learn from data—and ultimately achieve operational excellence. However, with the rise of digital transformation and the IIoT, renewable assets generate vast amounts of data, and providers are challenged with analyzing it and unlocking insights.

Additionally, energy operators are increasingly diversifying the kinds of assets in their fleets, often simultaneously operating a mix of wind, solar, and battery storage assets under the same operations. While there are synergies between each of these asset types, optimizing the performance of a mixed fleet is challenging. In this webinar, you’ll learn how AI has played a critical role in the day-to-day operations of 8.5 GW of wind, solar, and battery storage assets, and how your company can:

  • Improve operational efficiency with more accurate production forecasting
  • Eliminate wind energy loss due to yaw variance and pitch-bearing failures
  • Increase solar production with enhanced O&M practices to detect soiling and panel misalignment
  • Boost profitability with capacity loss optimization of battery energy storage systems

Register now to discover what other operators are doing to get the most out of their renewable assets and how you can gain a competitive advantage.


SparkCognition’s Sandeep Gupta and Stephen Gold explain:

  • How multiple assets are optimized using proven AI.
  • How AI solutions provide real-time insights, prescriptive actions, and continuous learning to improve production, optimize storage, and ensure safe operations.
  • How organizations are successfully transforming their digital environment to manage mix-asset farms.
