New call-to-action

Phase II of The Global Wind Challenge is now LIVE!

The Wind Challenge is an online game that takes you to Greenland, where you’ll find yourself on a virtual wind farm combining a mix of turbine types, all using different components and data sets. 

These turbines are facing serious issues: your mission is to take action to achieve the highest financial outcome by extending the machinery life span

  • Compete against your fellow wind experts to prove you have what it takes to make your turbine last the longest
  • Your goal is to improve your Net Present Savings or Financial Outcome the most through life extension
  • Play often and test out strategies on multiple wind turbine technology types
  • Compete to be the player with the optimal life-extension actions
  • The challenge is open to players from all around the world – making this a global battle for life extension. 

    Win a Model S ZERO Electric Motorcycle!
  • The Wind Challenge winner will be announced on 15 November at AWEA Clean Energy Executive Summit in Colorado Springs, CO. If you’re a winner, you don't need to be in Colorado, we'll contact you! 
  • The player who achieves the highest financial outcome by extending the machinery life span (measured in years) will be awarded a prize. 
  • The highest financial outcome is displayed as the IMPROVED OUTCOME which is a calculation based on the highest Net Present Savings (NPS) and the Life extension actions scheduled for the asset.
