AWEA honours 3TIER for commercial achievement

3TIER has received an American Wind Energy Association 2009 Award for developing FirstLook - a free Web-based wind and solar energy prospecting tool.

3TIER's FirstLook enables developers, operators, financiers and others interested in developing renewable energy to more quickly identify, quantify and prioritise optimal locations for renewable energy projects.

FirstLook offers registered users scientifically-derived data on the value of wind resources anywhere on the globe, and solar resources anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.

“This year’s award for commercial achievement is a real first, honouring 3TIER’s leadership in wind forecasting and resource assessment technologies,” said Denise Bode, ceo of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). “New leading-edge technologies like FirstLook help developers determine how wind energy can be tapped to power communities in the US and around the world. We’re pleased to note 3TIER’s leadership in this key area of the industry.”
