Webinar will commence at 6pm AEST
Large scale wind farms have been in operation within the country for over a decade, providing a reliable renewable energy source for Australia.  Throughout this time, these projects have taken advantage of advances in wind modelling techniques, generator and blade design, and complex control systems to increase the energy yield of sites making them more attractive than ever as a generation facility.  The investment to commence and implement a wind farm is significant and may run over a large number of years in consideration of the various risks and opportunities associated with the successful delivery of an operating wind farm.

This presentation aims to discuss the key project stages associated with building a wind farm in the Australian context, including:

  1. Site Selection
  2. Project Feasibility
  3. Detailed Assessment
  4. Planning and Environmental Approval
  5. Construction
  6. Operation

Several project examples will be examined to provide an illustration of wind farm construction and operation throughout Australia.
