This Wall Street Journal article Floating Wind Turbines Buoy Hopes of Expanding Renewable Energy looks at offshore wind farms that no longer need to be embedded in the seafloor but can float in deeper waters.
Summary & Goals
The goal of the PLM and Green Energy working group, led by Bjorn Fidjeland, within the PLM Green Global Alliance is to promote discussion and awareness of how Plant and Product Lifecycle Management strategies and enabling technologies can support the transition to green renewable energy sources.
Focus & Objectives
It is our firm belief that Plant & Product Lifecycle Management philosophies, strategies, systems, and software can play an important role to safely and more cost effectively:
- design, build, operate, maintain and decommission green energy production plants
- operate and maintain future energy storage units and distribution grids
- design, build, operate and maintain production facilities for products needed in the transition to green and renewable energy
- design, build, service and operate products needed to achieve a net zero emission society
Our objective is to share experiences, examples, and best practices in a collaborative mode to promote discussion, learning, and understanding with respect to the mentioned focus areas. We also plan to publish our own “industry heads up” news, articles and case studies illustrating all that is happening in the global race towards “going green” and a low-carbon economy.
Agenda & Activities
We will be pursuing our objectives by an agenda selected from a number of elements including: focus discussion groups, published articles and blog posts, recorded interviews, industry surveys, conference presentations, and cooperative events and alliances with other organizations. These objectives will be developed and prioritized in collaboration with our international members. Follow our progress or better yet join us with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
