September 7 (Renewables Now) - London-based renewables investor Cubico Sustainable Investments has chosen Clir Renewables, a company dedicated to maximising renewable energy asset returns, to optimise over 500 MW of its wind parks in Brazil and Uruguay.

Clir will monitor, optimise and report on performance on a per turbine and project basis for three projects in Brazil and two in Uruguay.

Clir will use the data and then benchmark it across the entire portfolio to achieve optimal asset operation.

In order to complete its tasks, Clir uses machine learning to analyse multiple data streams to pinpoint whether underperformance is because of low resource, environmental interference, or fixable technical errors. Once the data is compiled, Cubico will be able to identify ways to improve the wind assets.

“With this in-depth understanding of asset performance accessible to all stakeholders, we will be able to more accurately predict future energy yield, validate decision-making, drive improvements, and ultimately create additional value for Cubico,” said Charlie Plumley, Cubico’s Performance Manager.
