Hamburg 2016: WindEurope policy chief Kristian Ruby

GERMANY: Windpower Monthly TV, in association with Sentient Science, spoke to WindEurope chief policy officer about how digitalisation can reduce the cost of energy.

"One of the areas where digitalisation can really reduce the cost of energy is in operations and maintenance," Ruby said at the WindEnergy Hamburg event in Germany. 

"By monitoring our operations in a completely new way, we can increase yields dramatically and make sure that we make more money from the same amount of wind resource. 

"We've seen examples of businesses basically increasing their yield and profits by 20% through getting digitalisation right," Ruby added. 

Windpower Monthly TV is running throughout the WindEnergy Hamburg event in partnership with US-based firm Sentient Science — a material science-based technology company and a WindEurope board member.
