Typical development of a Wind Energy Project:
A financial desk study model reduces the uncertainty in a project
before the development expense accelerates.
The input for a desk study is an assessment of the wind potential
given from nearby airports, other wind turbines, site visits with
experienced eyes and economical inputs as backbone
knowledge for prices for the wind turbines and specially the balance
of plant containing the infrastructure as foundations,
service roads grid connection through substations and transformers etc.
An also possibility for developing aid financing as grants or soft loans is investigated.
Should the desk study show a good possibility of a financial viability,
a more through study takes place through a Feasibility Study which requires
establish of on-site meteorological measurements to get as close
to the wind speed and direction as possible, normally combined with long-term measurements from nearby airports or other meteorological stations.
