Wind energy digitalisation towards 2030

Published on 22 November 2021


Over the last two decades digitalisation has been transforming the power sector in a remarkable way. It has helped to reduce the costs of various grid and generation applications, to improve their performance and to multiply environmental benefits for energy consumers. This transformation has also been affecting the entire wind energy supply chain, from wind turbine manufacturing to daily wind farm operation and decommissioning. In the next decade the further digitalisation of wind farm construction, operation and maintenance (O&M) will be a major driver for improving performance and reducing costs and financial risk.

This report analyses the status of digitalisation of the wind energy sector today, investigates the major role of data in this transformation and presents WindEurope’s vision on the evolution of digital applications and technologies towards 2030.
