Nikolaisen spoke about the barriers affecting transparency in the wind industry: "The data infrastructure has not been designed. Consequently, our way of working and our attitudes towards transparency has been coloured by that, so it also needs a mental change."
"Transparency will also help allocate resources. When we all know where the problems are, we can all come and help solve them," Nikolaisen said.
He also discusses the practicality and limitations of met masts.
