About this webinar

Lightning is a serious meteorological hazard for the wind energy industry. From downtime to crew security and income loss, lightning damages can reach up to 1.5 million euros per lightning event for a wind turbine. A recent study in Germany revealed that lightning strikes resulted in 80% of all insurance claims involving wind turbines.
