Operational excellence solutions from AWEA’s OMS conference

3/22/18
How would you answer the question, “How can the wind industry achieve O&M excellence?” AWEA and sponsor Uptake asked that question of industry leaders at the AWEA Wind Project O&M and Safety Conference in February. During a Leadership Forum on operational excellence held the day before the conference, participants were split into two groups – one of managers and directors, and one of executives. Attendees then completed a series of exercises to outline the industry’s biggest barriers to O&M excellence and brainstormed how we might overcome them.

AWEA is the national trade association for the U.S. wind industry, the largest source of renewable energy in the country. We represent 1,000 member companies, 120,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, and a nationwide workforce located across all 50 states. AWEA serves as a powerful voice for how wind works for America. Members include global leaders in wind power and energy development, turbine manufacturing, and component and service suppliers. They gather each year at the Western Hemisphere’s most efficient and targeted event for utility-scale renewable companies, the AWEA CLEANPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Indianapolis, June 7-10, 2021. An outgrowth of the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, CLEANPOWER is the first trade show focused exclusively on the utility-scale renewable power sector, bringing together all the major developers, utilities, OEMs, suppliers and buyers under one roof.
