Nierenberg is an award-winning wind industry veteran and meteorological specialist with 40 years of experience.
Nierenberg has more than four decades of experience with meteorological consulting in wind energy. His expertise ranges from prospecting and project analysis in development, to due diligence and strategic/operational climatological studies. He has designed, implemented, and analyzed wind-energy assessment programs to optimize production from wind-farm developments for hundreds of clients on more than 21 GW of wind-farm projects since 1978.
Nierenberg has been involved with the first wind-energy facilities in most states. One such project was the original wind study of the Altamont Pass, which led to the installation of $1.5 billion of wind turbines in the region. Nierenberg has worked on projects in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, China, India, and Europe, which fits seamlessly with ArcVera’s renewable energy experience on six continents. He has designed and managed federally funded wind-energy studies and has authored DOE/NREL (or SERI) reports.
In April 1998, Nierenberg was given a special award For making critical contributions to the development of wind energy in the U.S. and around the world, presented by the American Wind Energy Association.
“We are excited to have Ron join and enhance our powerful wind energy team,” said Gregory S. Poulos, CEO of ArcVera Renewables. “With his tremendous knowledge of wind energy-specific meteorology, wind-project experience relevant to rapid and insightful guidance, and undeniable zest for wind energy problem solving, I am confident that he will make important contributions to our clients new and old throughout the world.”
