Wind energy - the fastest growing source of sustainable energy production in the world - can contribute substantially to global goals for reducing CO2. Sites located offshore and in remote areas are ideal for wind farms and there is enough potential worldwide for wind farms to generate more than twice the forecast energy demand in 2020.
Parallel to the rapid growth of large-scale wind energy production, alternative technologies are emerging, such as sophisticated small-scale urban turbines, which can be incorporated into the architecture of modern cityscapes. Our wind energy experts advise project developers, energy companies, local and regional authorities, turbine manufacturers, financial institutions and others.

HSE - Health, Safety & Environmental liabilities
Sustainable energy has its own characteristics and therefore requires a separate approach for HSE management. As a niche player in this market, Ecofys has been at the centre of these developments in both onshore and offshore wind energy projects: acting as consultants, but also together with our clients as part of the day-to-day running of the business, as part of technical project teams and supervising on site. That’s really our strength: combining strategic, fundamental, technical and practical expertise helping you managing your HSE liabilities.
