We heard your feedback and suggestions from last year’s event and we are now truly excited to announce the return of Windpower Monthly ’s Wind Data Forum  to be held in Houston, TX, March 14-16, 2016.

  • Learn from the hands-on experience of industry-leaders on using cloud-based solutions to store data and a direct and realistic comparison to physical servers
  • Get the latest on emerging economies - learn how to build the know-how on data management
  • Dig deep into how to correctly use data analysis and probability to enhance your wind farm operational performance
  • Get the low down on how to extract the most out of forecasting and real time data
  • Hear about the latest advancements in condition monitoring and failure prevention for components

HOT TOPIC ON THE 2016 AGENDA: Breakthrough strategies on how to overcome cyber security concerns and become fully NERC compliant

“In a 2015 Survey, SANS found that 32% of respondents who actively maintain, operate or provide services to facilities maintaining industrial control systems indicated their control system assets or networks had been infiltrated or infected at some point, 34% believe their systems have been breached more than twice in the past 12 months, 15% reported needing more than a month to detect a breach and 44% were unable to identify the source of the infiltration. The threat to any control system and data, whether for profit or fun, is out there. At the same time, the latest Critical Infrastructure Protection standards from NERC require protection of control systems, or you face potential fines. The drivers are there and it is only becoming more pervasive, so now is the time, more than ever, to focus on cyber security in wind generation control and data systems.”
