More than 50,000 new jobs through photovoltaics and storage technology

05 Dec 2019 | Bonn/Berlin/Pforzheim (renewablepress) - In order to avoid a shortfall in electricity generation as a result of the nuclear and coal phaseout, photovoltaic and storage capacities must be expanded.

Independent Software Solution for Data Retrieval from Senvion Turbines

25 Nov 2019 | Rostock (renewablepress) - The insolvency of Senvion GmbH raises many questions for the future monitoring of Senvion turbines.

Transferring the maintenance contract to an independent service provider does not avoid the risk that the access to the Senvion portal could be shut down and operators and works managers might no longer be able to access the data of the wind turbines. DrehPunkt GmbH already provides an alternative that works without the Senvion portal. The data are retrieved directly from the turbine. ... read more...
