For the solar and wind industries, which already have benefited from artificial intelligence applications in weather forecasting and control, the positive impact will be on inspections and certification, with further-term impacts on supply chain and even transportation and construction. How quickly these impacts occur is an issue of debate ─ but they surely will occur.
