Mrs. Christina Aabo, Head of Concepts & Solutions Engineering, Wind Power, Dong Energy
SKF 8th Annual Wind Farm Management Conference
Reduction of cost of energy highly depends on the innovation of tomorrow’s wind power plants and that can’t be done by one party alone. That requires increased cooperation across the value chain of the industry. Some innovation projects are carried out internally in DONG Energy whereas others are in close cooperation with external partners. The presentation will focus at showing examples of the external cooperation in some of the industry groups as Carbon Trust, with selected universities and other private companies. The presentation gives an overview how the innovation work is done in the idea generation and analysis phase but zoom in on the efforts on improvements in the operation phase where the revenue stream is at stake. The cooperation with suppliers and other asset owners is essential and an examples on how DONG Energy is handling this is presented.
