17 May 2021: Wind Farm Analytics has listened to investors and now offers a new de-risked investment plan – we reduced our ask from £3 million to £500k but we still have a fully costed plan to reach £18 million operating profit by year 5; we continue expanding our investor base and our team, including experienced industry insiders; we will now focus on providing ground based services to avoid being diverted by floating and rotor-integrated products until such time as revenue justifies expansion; instead of jumping directly into high value manufacturing we will outsource manufacturing to existing Glasgow technology partners in the first 3 years while we build the rental fleet and prove product revenue.

Multiple percentage points of inefficiency, and therefore production and revenue loss, are occurring on many operational wind farms and often without the awareness of the operator. Wind Farm Analytics has unique knowledge of sources of wind turbine underperformance including curtailment, complex terrain, parameter settings and many other possibilities.
In order to maximise efficiency and assist in the success of wind energy such inefficiencies must be identified, root cause analysis undertaken and corrective measures agreed and implemented in order to eradicate the problem or prevent it recurring in future, either on the same project or on other projects. Once this is achieved cumulative benefits can accrue for the whole future of the wind farm operation implying potential efficiency increase for up to 25 years, not to mention lessons learnt for future projects with regard to turbine micro-siting, engineering response time or wind turbine supply improvements.
