Wind turbine owner's roundtable:

KPIs in wind farm operations
24 OCT - Session 1
View timetable

An event where you will only meet professionals working directly for other wind turbine owners 
Don't waste your time traveling to conferences to listen to sales pitches. Cut out all sales pitches and meet directly - only with genuine wind turbine owner peers. 

That's right, only professionals working directly for wind turbine owners can join this event. Meeting with only other end-users of wind turbines creates a completely different dialog, or as said by the Global Head of O&M at Enel Green Power who visited our event in 2017: "It has been a very productive and transparent dialog between all of us”.

The roundtable presented below can be one of the most valuable discussions you will have this year:

A well-balanced set up of KPIs should help you to monitor financial results, understand if everything is on track and give you as early warnings as possible. All owners are constantly developing this. New measurement equipment, new data sources, new analysis methods and a decrease in cost of analysis process power are constantly changing this challenge.

Agenda suggested for discussions:

  • What is the difference between target and performance indicators?
  • Which indicators help us to achieve the wanted results, let us know if we are on track or gives us warnings?
  • Which indicators are driving costs and which are driving revenues?
  • Difficulties in measuring dependability costs
  • How can SAP (and similar sys) make cost reporting more complicated and less reliable?
  • Which are the most interesting KPI correlations to analyze?
  • From which sources do we draw data to create KPIs on failure rates?
  • If lower failure rates do not produce higher availability – how can this be explained?
  • Which recommended target levels do we have compared with other owners on our most central KPIs?
  • How to analyze the split between scheduled service downtime and failure downtime?
  • How to make sure that KPIs for energy yield is correct measured and not based on a time-based mindset?
  • Which are the most relevant KPIs for O&M costs?
