Esri Launches European Wind User Group

Members Share Insight into Spatial Technology to Develop, Plan, and Maintain Wind Farms

REDLANDS, Calif., Aug. 14, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Wind energy professionals across Europe now have a local source for the exchange of ideas, success stories, and information about geospatial technology for on- and offshore wind farms: the Esri European Wind User Group. The group's mission is to discuss the best ways to meet daily challenges and learn how proven applications of geographic information system (GIS) technology from Esri and its partners can support wind farm business processes.

"GIS technology allows us to develop, plan, and maintain wind farms," said Anders Ropke, president of the European Wind User Group and GIS and environmental engineer for DONG Energy A/S in Denmark. "Spatial overview and analysis add direct value to the DONG Energy wind power organization. Applied GIS services and analysis contribute positively to the business case for offshore wind power production."

The first European Wind User Group meeting was held this past May in Gentofte, Denmark. The event was hosted by DONG Energy along with Informi GIS A/S, Esri's distributor in Denmark.

Wind energy professionals, including operators and developers, are welcome to join the group via LinkedIn to stay apprised of upcoming events.
