Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

The trust was looking to reduce its carbon footprint and in 2010 called upon the experience of Transtherm to help it find bespoke solutions in cooling equipment for its existing power systems.

As the site was fully operational, the best way to achieve this was to use a gas-fired, power generating set that provides both heat and power. This is an ideal solution for hospitals, as they require large amounts of both.

Transtherm then provided adiabatic and air blast coolers to dissipate any unwanted heat when it is not being recovered.

The HVAC experts needed to take into consideration the risks and issues surrounding legionella, noise emissions, and having their data independently verified before any work was commissioned.

Since the installation of the new generating set, the trust has seen a plethora of benefits, from the means to produce electricity onsite, as well as being able to obtain it from the Grid, to reducing the output of noise which generators normally provide. Most importantly, it has helped to improve the cost of energy that the trust normally spends.

With a successful installation and proven reduction in cost, Transtherm is pleased that the trust decided to implement the same infrastructure across its other sites in and around Birmingham.
