WindESCo Nodes in Operation
Decrease operating expenses
Sensing the future
As utility scale wind turbines have become larger and more intelligent, wind power’s cost of energy has decreased dramatically. However, even as wind power equipment has become more advanced, wind farms continue to struggle with energy underperformance and high unscheduled maintenance costs. This underperformance is costing project owners an estimated $13 billion annually.
Utilizing a combination of smart sensing, advanced analytics and real-time feedback control, WindESCo is an IIoT firm revolutionizing how wind farms leverage data to maximize profit and performance. We offer a variety of platforms intended to save wind farm operators savings in the hundreds of millions over the life of a project by increasing annual energy production (AEP), reducing major component failures, increasing component lifetime and by providing real time feedback for end-to-end improvements. WindESCo’s scalable solutions enable wind farm operators prevent expensive equipment failures before they happen and extend asset life beyond the design lifetime of wind energy equipment.
Prevention and Action
While many CMS solutions and analytics firms predict wind turbine failure, WindESCo works to prevent it by mapping the wind load using its innovative low-cost sensor technology and delivering real-time feedback to mitigate its effect.
WindESCo’s analytics platform not only identifies and prevents failures; it maximizes wind farm performance and generates a 2-6% increase in annual energy production. WindESCo’s WeBoost program can increase revenue by millions of dollars for wind energy owners.
WindESCo’s platform can lower operating expenses and extend the life of your wind energy assets so they can be operated efficiently beyond their design lifetime.
WHO WE SERVE
The global wind industry has undergone a stunning metamorphosis from fringe technology to real player on the grid. In the past ten years alone, global wind capacity has grown from 120,000 MW in 2008 to 540,000 MW in 2017. That remarkable growth has been driven by customers seeking cost-efficient answers to power generation and utilities seeking a solution to volatility in fossil fuel markets.
However, as many of the subsidies and incentives for the wind industry are expiring across the globe, and with increased O&M cost due to turbines aging, operating wind assets must continue innovating to remain cost competitive with traditional sources of power generation.
Founder and CEO
Mo is the Founder and CEO of WindESCo. He is passionate about applying data science and sensing to solve challenges faced by the operating wind assets. A problem solver at heart, he founded WindESCo to realize his vision of providing a comprehensive optimization solution for wind farms.
Prior to WindESCo, Mohit worked as the head of the analytics group at First Wind supporting development and operation of more than 16 wind farms on USA. It was while working at First Wind and seeking optimization solutions that he became aware of an urgent need in the market for a company like WindESCo.
Mohit has an MS in Mechanical Engineering from UMass, Amherst and a BS from Delhi University.
