Gone with the Wind

Gone with the Wind: An Asset Manager’s Guide to Mitigating Wind Power Resource Risk focuses on the challenges posed by weather-related underperformance to wind energy asset owners and investors, outlining the scale of the volumetric resource problem.

The report includes:

  • An analysis of the barriers to adoption of WRT and potential solutions
  • An explanation of WRT product structures and how to calculate revenue
  • Interviews with Infigen, weather measurement experts Vaisala, and risk transfer intermediary REsurety
