Find, Fix, Measure™
Continuous, Scalable Optimization for Wind Assets
Synthesizing SCADA to Improve
Actions, AEP, Reliability, Performance, Site Management, Insight, Profitability
WindESCo provides deep analytics that go beyond traditional dashboard providers. Leveraging existing SCADA, we can deliver performance and reliability improvements without the need for additional hardware. Our customers see clear and attractive returns on their investment year after year.
HOW IT WORKS
Using existing SCADA, WindESCo continuously checks wind assets for opportunities to optimize performance and reliability. Finds are verified by our experts and displayed in the WindESCo portal where they can be reviewed and prioritized by your team.
WindESCo provides Fix recommendations to improve asset performance. These recommendations are used by your team, OEMs and third-party service providers to advance from availability-based KPIs to performance-based programs.
Measurement is a key feature of the WindESCo solution. Once Fixes are marked as complete, we calculate and report the performance improvement in both financial upside and additional MWh at the turbine, site and fleet levels.

A Financial Approach to Wind Turbine Optimization
WindESCo puts the financial opportunity for wind asset optimization front and center. We provide a continuous calculation of the increased AEP and new revenue opportunities for your fleet, sites and individual assets. We help you prioritize performance and reliability improvements based on business initiatives and maintenance schedule.
Quickly Sort and Prioritize Improvement Opportunities
Sort opportunities to improve performance to determine the most impactful actions for your site or fleet. Sort actions by AEP potential or run a campaign across your assets for a specific performance improvement.
Measure the Impact of Performance Optimization
Measurement of AEP gain plays a critical role in your optimization programs. WindESCo tracks the financial and MWh impact of every improvement you make at the turbine level. See your annual and cumulative performance gains.
Scalable to your Entire Fleet
Performance and reliability analytics are important but doing them at scale is how operators can improve financials. Scaling Find, Fix, Measure across a fleet does not mean more work for your team. The most nimble and efficient teams in the wind industry leverage WindESCo to find optimization opportunities without adding work hours.
