Windlab Systems Pty Ltd (“Windlab”) is a global wind energy development company. It was established to commercialise world leading atmospheric modeling and wind energy assessment technology, developed by Australia’s premier scientific research institute, the CSIRO. Windlab owns and exclusively utilises this suite of industry best practice wind energy prospecting and assessment tools to identify and efficiently develop high quality wind farm sites in its chosen markets, with considerably greater certainty and less risk.
This technological advantage has enabled Windlab to rapidly build a portfolio of high quality wind farm sites totaling more than 7,000MW of potential capacity across Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Southern Africa.
Windlab has played a foundation role in the creation of Australia’s wind industry and is now leading the development of the industry in Southern Africa. Windlab’s track record includes 273MW of operating capacity and 226MW currently under construction. It has sold more than 1,000MW of capacity to partners and has permitting approval for a further 1,500MW. The bulk of this capacity will reach financial close over the next two years.
