Why is Wind Turbine Generator Demand Sure to Rise Going Ahead?

“Wind Energy Economic Alternative to Conventional Energy”

The most affordable energy source accessible today is land-based utility-scale wind energy, which costs 1–2 cents per kilowatt-hour after production tax credit. Wind energy mitigates the price volatility that fuel contributes to traditional sources of energy, because its electricity is supplied at a fixed price over a lengthy period (up to 20 years), and its fuel is free.

Wind energy capacity additions have been fueled by production tax credit, as well as advancements in the performance of wind power technology, resulting in low-cost wind energy. Because wind is free, operating costs are lower when compared to conventional methods.

Throughout their lifecycle, turbines and generators don't require significant maintenance and operate in auto-pilot mode. The energy produced is economic, even though wind turbines have high upfront costs, providing consistency in demand as well as high opportunities to generate revenue for turbine generator manufacturers.

“Industries to Grow with Wind Power Deployment at Competitive Price”

The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) is working with industry partners to increase the performance and reliability of next-generation wind technologies for lowering the cost of wind energy. Wind industry technology must continue to evolve, increase its capacity factors, and reduce costs to ensure sustained growth.

Investment in renewables would be paid for several times over by the savings, which include US$ 30 to 40 billion in long-term electricity cost reduction and US$ 193 billion annual savings in fuel imports as renewable penetration increases.

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) has pioneered wind turbine materials, components, systems, and modeling methods, which has led to industry acceleration.

Reduction of wind turbine certification testing times and costs, utilizing controllable grid interface test systems, provides engineers with a better understanding of how wind turbines, photovoltaic inverters, and energy storage systems react to disturbances in electric power systems.

Computational fluid dynamics are used to develop simulators for wind farm applications and modeling & control tools, which aid wind farm owners lessen turbine wake effects by looking into plant performance under several atmospheric conditions.

Which Type of Deployment is Set to Bring in Huge Profits?

“Onshore Deployment of Wind Turbine Generators to Be Focus of Manufacturers”

Onshore and offshore wind turbines are installed comprehensively around the world, and their installation is increasing significantly day by day. Additionally, the onshore wind turbine generator market is increasing rapidly owing to easy installation, lower maintenance, and a growing number of onshore wind energy projects across the globe.

Onshore wind turbine generators account for a valuation of around US$ 15.2 billion in 2022, and their demand is expected to grow 1.8X by the end of 2032.

Which Type of Wind Turbine Generator Will See High Installation Rates?

“Direct Drive Wind Turbine Generator to Witness Accelerated Demand Growth”

In the wind turbine generator market, direct drive wind turbine generators are gaining huge attention. As market requirements are dynamically changing for renewable energy products, the efficiency of wind generators with the ability to change the speed of the generator at the required scale has become a vital component for wind energy generation.

Geared drive generators require extra stages of gears to operate, and are seeing less demand in the wind turbine generator market.
