Wind Energy 

The transition to a sustainable energy future is happening everywhere – and wind is a part of it. We are in a decade of deployment as we accelerate towards 2030 sustainable energy and decarbonization goals. While there is more clarity than ever, the challenges are many – transmission capacity, supply chain, staffing shortages, scaling, and repowering nuances. Westwood provides your team stability, industry experience, and trusted deliverables, to help bring your projects across the finish line.   

Trusted Industry Leader

Since 1997, our team has provided the wind energy industry with siting, permitting, engineering, and surveying expertise you can trust. We seamlessly collaborate across our full-service teams to find the most cost-effective solutions. Whether your project is GW-scale, a repower, or a hybrid, our team can identify project risks and quickly find an efficient path forward. 

Extension of your Team

When you have limited resources and time, you need a partner that knows wind. Our project managers can help your team navigate quickly through all development and construction phases. We can mentor your team as they experience rapid growth and enhanced technologies. We are committed to your project, providing quality products, and finding success for all stakeholders. 

Evolving Solutions

Projects are continually getting more complex with faster timelines, limited resources, and remote teams. Westwood understands we need to evolve just as quickly. Leveraging the latest innovations and technologies such as GIS, satellites, drones, and artificial intelligence, we're digitizing project processes, leveraging the cloud, and redefining what a single source of truth means to ensure project success.
