Public-Private collaboration aims to improve security for wind energy technologies
Houston, TX – Industry experts from Everpoint Services (“Everpoint”) and National Lab Researchers from Idaho National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories have engaged in collaboration efforts to focus on securing the nations fleet of wind plants.
The teams recently met at a 20 Megawatt wind plant owned by Everpoint in Northern Texas to perform live field evaluations of hardware and software with the intent of leveraging physical infrastructure of the wind industry with a digital posture.
Everpoint utilizes their wind plant as an R&D facility for technologies and processes to improve its services offerings – turbine decommissioning, testing solar radiation monitoring, sensor-enabled vegetation management, equipment vibration and other potential enhancements to its businesses of servicing and maintaining renewable energy assets.
“This is an exciting example of public and private interests coming together to solve the complex challenges facing energy power generation plants in the United States,” said Tyler Goodell, CEO at Everpoint Services.
