Data visualization is also at the forefront of the new version. Summary dashboards, generation charts, and project maps provide users with another perspective of the data. WindIQ is also integrating more 3rd party data including data from the Energy Information Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

How do I use WindIQ?

The WindIQ database includes four different tabs that users can use to search for wind projects, turbines, manufacturing facilities, or both. The “Project” tab is designed so the user can easily filter wind projects by status, project name, year online, location, owner, power offtaker, project size and other factors to quickly find the specific information of interest. In the “Turbine” tab, users can search for turbine-level data such as turbine model, and export information including turbine latitude and longitude coordinates. In the “Manufacturing” tab, the user can filter based on state, company, or component. In the “Projects and Mfg” tab, users can perform location-based queries to see the wind industry’s full footprint in a certain area.

What are the ‘filtered’ columns?

When searching for a specific project year online, project status, project owner, or project developer, WindIQ provides capacity and turbine count values specific the criteria selected for one or all of these five fields. For example, if you searched for all projects owned by a specific company, they may have partial ownership stakes in projects. The filtered columns would reflect these partial stakes, while the unfiltered capacity and turbine count values would represent the full project details.

What is the source of the data in WindIQ?

ACP’s expert staff collects wind energy project and wind-related manufacturing facility information on a year-round basis from public and private sources. ACP validates all information before publishing in WindIQ or ACP Market Reports.

How are others utilizing WindIQ to help their business?

Here are just a few of the ways:

A company lobbyist has a meeting on the hill with a key member of congress and needs to gather collateral regarding the presence of the industry in the member’s district: In a just a few minutes, WindIQ can provide a summary of all the wind assets in the member’s district and a state fact sheet detailing the economic, employment, and environmental benefits the industry provides.

A business development manager is working to prioritize sales calls and optimize the efficiency of her/his team: With a multitude of querying and sorting capabilities, WindIQ allows the users to quickly narrow in on projects with a specific turbine manufacture or model, focus on projects of a specific size, build year, or build location, or capture new or missing projects from previous searches. All these actions help to focus time and discover the right customers. [actual testimonial from a user]

A large component manufacturer is considering building a new manufacturing facility to supply increasing wind demand: WindIQ can quickly show the geographic footprint of their existing product placement and highlight geographic trends for future deployment. This ability to see where projects are being actively developed and constructed not only helps inform site selection, but can also highlight potential customers that can be supplied from existing facilities.
