Wind turbine designs are continuing to evolve and develop. The wind turbines installed in the next decades may generate twice the electricity of those currently in operation. New rotor, drivetrain and energy storage concepts will be advanced. To incorporate future technology, the risks and uncertainties must be quantified through the use of the very best information available, including operational data and failure statistics alongside qualitative assessments of new functional elements or components. The result is the most accurate possible risk-based planning resource, which improves as more information becomes available. This facilitates sound decision making on finance, investments, changes of ownership and detailed planning for construction and operation of the wind farm.
