    ... assessments The software by DNV GL provides an intuitive step-by-step approach to calculating the potential energy yield of a wind farm project, delivering increased calculation transparency and accuracy. DNV GL’s 30 years of wind farm development expertise across 200,000 MW of energy production assessments has been encapsulated into the latest analysis tool. DNV GL, development, analyst, tool, WindFarmer DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, has launched WindFarmer: Analyst, its new software tool designed for optimised wind resource assessments. The software provides an intuitive step-by-step approach to calculating the potential energy yield of a wind farm project, delivering increased calculation transparency and accuracy.  The new wind resource assessment and analysis tool, is built on the experience of conducting “bankable” energy production assessments on over 200,000 MW worth of wind farm projects globally. A significant feature of WindFarmer: Analyst is the ability to extend and automate its functionality through a built-in scripting interface. Scripting is a revolutionary new feature that is not currently available on the market. The interface is bespoke and customizable, allowing for a wind farm analysis to be written and then updated at the click of a button. Scripts offer a traceable method of performing an analysis, thus reducing errors and making results repeatable. The scripting integration with existing processes and systems can boost efficiency and reduce errors. This provides more flexibility, room for innovation, and integration with customer processes. Furthermore, the software tool provides the user with a step-by-step guide through the energy calculation method. The increased transparency enables users to demonstrates how wind energy assessment calculations are obtained, providing the required insight to adjust inputs and get more accurate outputs, enables users to achieve greater accuracy on viable projects, increase project assurance and secure project financing. Prajeev Rasiah, Executive Vice President Northern Europe, Middle East & Africa at DNV GL - Energy, said “Understanding our customers was critical when building a software tool that optimally assists their working environment.

    Watershed moment: World will reach a plateau of final energy demand around 2030 09/08/2017
    ...Watershed moment: World will reach a plateau of final energy demand around 2030 The first energy transition outlook from DNV GL predicts that the world's energy supply will flatten from 2030 onwards, but there is still cause for concern because the two-degree target of Paris will clearly be missed. energy transition, coal, nuclear, natural gas, renewables, Paris Climate Agreement For the first time, the Norwegian certifier DNV GL has published its "Energy Transition Outlook" this week with its outlines on the next stages of the energy transition. As the company is active both in the field of renewable energies and in the oil and natural gas industries, it is predestined to carry out a balanced and neutral analysis of the energy transition. “As a company, we are highly exposed to the radical changes that will come to every part of the energy value chain, and it is critical for our customers and ourselves that we understand the nature and pace of these changes,” said Remi Eriksen, Group President & CEO of DNV GL at the presentation of the study in London. The results make it clear that humanity is heading for a peak in the energy market. Thanks to the rapid electrification of the world's energy systems, the energy efficiency can be improved more quickly than the global economy can grow which is why the energy demand is set to plateau from 2030 onwards. Electricity mix will be less diverse The electricity mix in 2050 will also look different than today, as only a few energy sources determine the power supply: the proportion of renewable energies will continue to grow and by the year 2050 will make up almost half of the electricity mix. The other half is powered by natural gas, which will overtake oil as the most important fossil energy source by 2034 at the latest. The importance of oil, sometimes referred to as "black gold" in the past, will decrease in the next 10 to 15 years, just like nuclear power. The use of coal has already exceeded its peak and will no longer play a significant role in the future. Transport sector ensures demise of oil The transport sector will have a major stake in the demise of oil, because it will shift to electric vehicles in the future. Electric vehicles will achieve cost parity with internal combustion vehicles in 2022 and, by 2033, half of new light vehicle sales globally will be electric. "Ultimately, it will be a willingness to innovate and a capability to move at speed that will determine who is able to remain competitive in this dramatically altered energy landscape,“ warns Eriksen. The current example from Germany shows that automotive companies have been denying the trend for many years and are now desperately trying to save their market shares for vehicles with internal combustion engines somehow over time. Other countries, however, have long been working on the shift to electric vehicles. Renewables will get even more cheaper Costs for photovoltaic and wind power will even more decrease in the future: DNV GL expects that renewables will improve their cost performance at a much faster rate, benefitting from the ‘learning curve’ effect. A price decline of 18% or 16% is therefore likely. Nevertheless, this is not enough to ensure that the climate protection targets of the Paris Agreement will be met. Two degrees are impossible It is important to note that the climate protection targets laid down by the international community in the Paris Climate Agreement can not be achieved. In particular, the two-degree target to be achieved by reducing CO2 emissions is missed by 0.5 degrees. “Even with energy demand flattening and emissions halving, our model still points to a significant overshoot of the 2°C carbon budget. This should be a wake-up call to governments and decision-makers within the energy industry. The industry has taken bold steps before, but now needs to take even bigger strides,” says Eriksen. Economy and politics need to work hand in hand “Until 2050 the electricity share of energy demand will grow from 18% to 40% yet this transformation is not happening fast enough. Speeding up the acceleration of electrifying sectors like heat and transport will be one vital measure to put the brakes on global warming. The climate challenge is not an engineering challenge, but one of governance. We call upon all stakeholders to maximise the electrification of their operations,“ said Ditlev Engel, CEO at DNV GL – Energy. Only if everybody works hand in hand, it may be possible to convert the energy systems quickly enough in order to stop the destruction of the earth in time. Download the complete report here. ...

  • Companies are increasingly going green 06/30/2017
    ... by consumers voicing their preference for sustainable products DNV GL, green business, eco, customer These results emerged from a survey of more than... 1,700 professionals worldwide conducted by the certification body DNV GL, with the support of international research institute GFK Eurisko, to detect companies’ approach to environmental management. The results of the 2017 survey were compared to the findings from a similar survey conducted in 2014 to detect changes in trends. The survey shows that the customer's voice matters. Requests from customers (50%) were the driving force that increased the most in the 2017 survey, up 15% from 2014 and the second most important driver, only surpassed by compliance with laws and regulations (77%). The push from other stakeholders is felt, as reported by 25% of the respondents - up 10% from the previous survey. Companies are still facing more or less the same challenges as they did three years ago, and the top risks are related to waste management and more particularly the disposal of waste (55%), handling of hazardous materials (44%) and discharge of waste water (36%). Growing investments, but less focus on the supply chain Of the companies surveyed, 74% state that environmental management is relevant for their overarching business strategy, and 45% say their company will increase investments in environmental management going forward, up almost 10% compared to the former survey. Worldwide, 96% of companies carried out at least one action to evaluate or mitigate environmental risks in 2017. Monitoring the process for checking compliance with legal requirements (73%), carrying out regular maintenance to minimize environmental impacts (70%) and conducting ongoing assessments of impacts (65%) were the main initiatives undertaken. While there is a growing focus on own operations, only one in three businesses has a supplier environmental management programme, a lower number than expected since the focus on suppliers is a crucial aspect for external stakeholders. Luca Crisciotti, CEO of DNV GL – Business Assurance, comments: “It is encouraging to see that companies are on a positive trend when it comes to environmental management. But there is still an upside when it comes to the wider supplier network. And, like consumer power, companies should acknowledge the influence they have on their suppliers to improve sustainability in the wider supply chain.” Standards provide value A decrease in the number of environmental accidents was listed as the primary benefit achieved by environmental management efforts, stated by 52% of the respondents. Improved relations with authorities (48%), financial savings (40%) and competitive advantages (36%) followed next. About 80% of the companies surveyed believe that an environmental management system based on the international ISO 14001 standard and third-party certification adds value. It is particularly considered an aid for meeting legal requirements (77%) and improving performance (72%). ...

  • DNV GL invites wind industry to Joint Industry Project to optimize wind farm operations 06/17/2017
    ...DNV GL invites wind industry to Joint Industry Project to optimize wind farm operations DNV GL wants to reduce downtime and lower costs of wind farms The company has set up a Joint Industry Project (JIP) to improve performance for wind farms during their life span of 25 years or more. Optimizing operations will further reduce downtime and lower costs DNV GL, JIP, wind farm operations, downtime DNV GL announces its latest Joint Industry Project (JIP), aiming to optimize the performance of wind farms by reducing the downtime and lower the costs of energy during the operational project life span of 25 years or more. Wind farm owners are faced with many challenges to increase availability and performance of wind turbines while driving down the costs. “Modern turbines are meeting the industry performance assumptions of 97% onshore and 94% offshore, but there is room for improvement and even higher performance can be reached by optimised operations driven by a well-managed operations and maintenance strategy,” says Kim Moerk, Executive Vice President Renewables Certification at DNV GL. When every megawatt counts, there is zero tolerance of any unexplained or unplanned underperformance. A strategy and best practices should be defined to achieve these ambitious goals. In collaboration with several wind energy stakeholders like operators, manufacturers and insurance companies, DNV GL will develop a recommended practice which will describe best methods for wind farm operations. Operational configuration and technical management will be addressed to define the optimal operational setup. “We are inviting all interested partners to work with us on capping costs and achieving best balance of capital expenditures and operational expenditures of wind farms,” says Fabio Pollicino, Vice President and Service Line Leader for Project Certification at DNV GL. “Only by joining forces and industry collaboration we can build this recommended practice to define an independent defined baseline for operators. It will provide guidance to enhance the wind farm performance of wind farms worldwide and further grow the wind industry.” During the project, the partners will determine the average way of today's various wind farm operations and identify the strategy to achieve optimum operations for individual wind farms. The planning, implementation and operational phases will be considered together and examined in a detailed manner. The identification of the wind farm operational configuration, plant management and on-site validation are key topics to be elaborated by the partners of this JIP. Companies interested in joining the JIP can contact Fabio Pollicino, Service Line Leader Project Certification (see contact box on top). In additionon, DNV GL has recently started a JIP to improve assessment of site condition data for offshore wind farms. ...
