Corrosion Impacts in Renewables

Corrosion Technical Series

Corrosion Impacts in Renewable Energy

February 23-24, 2021
10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. each day
Virtual (Zoom)

This two-day seminar focuses on a variety of renewables markets such as wind and solar energy. Corrosion is a continuing and major issue in all fields of energy, particularly renewable energy. Newly engineered systems are designed for up to 30 years of service but exposure to environmental corrosion, UV, extreme temperatures and salt corrosion can challenge component durability. Excessive component failures can lead to high maintenance cost and overall under performance of energy output. This event will identify corrosion management methodologies in these respective areas.
