Innovative Tools that Shape the Renewable Energy Future
We’re not just business as usual.
EcoEnergy draws from the broad technical experience of our staff and lessons learned from past projects
to improve upon standard industry practices. Some of our recent innovations include:
EcoProspector, which helps focus project development; and
EcoNet, which is used to design more efficient power
collection networks. We have also been working on High Visibility Marking guidelines for our 60 meter met towers.
We don't just deliver projects. We deliver better, more efficient projects.
EcoProspector: Bringing a Clear Focus to Wind Project Development
EcoProspector is a unique modeling tool that removes the guesswork and delays involved in siting wind
projects. We begin with readily available GIS data, and apply a proprietary process to evaluate project
areas. The results focus time & efforts for land acquisition and project siting. EcoProspector provides a
proven competitive advantage in taking projects from development through construction.
- Optimized land and siting efforts
- Increased efficiency
- Reduced costs
EcoNet: Better Results through Better Engineering
The EcoNet Intelligent Power Collection System improves on the business-as-usual approach to power
project collection systems. EcoNet employs a patent-pending process to minimize lifecycle costs and to
maximize returns for multi-generator power collection systems. The EcoNet design also delivers higher
system reliability, to minimize system down-time.
The EcoNet Advantage:
- Reduced construction costs
- Reduced operating costs
- Reduced maintenance costs
High Visibility Marking for 60 meter Meterological (Met) Towers
EcoEnergy has been developing ways to make our met towers more visible to pilots. We recognize that aerial application, also known as crop dusting, is an important tool for farmers to use to manage their crops. Likewise, pilots undertaking emergency rescue must be aware of the met towers.
By collaborating with the aerial application industry and emergency rescue personnel, we have developed guidelines for High Visibility Marking for our 60 meter met towers. These efforts have been recognized by the National Agricultural Aviation Association. You can read their letter of support here.
