The experts on renewable grid integration solutions will review and discuss recent advances in technology and exchange ideas on how to jointly tackle the challenges of the coming years. The primary objective is to stimulate interdisciplinary thinking between industry and research by providing a platform for discussion and for sharing ideas and knowledge regarding the key issues in the field of large-scale integration of wind power. The importance of grid integration of variable renewables is constantly increasing world-wide. Considering the speed of renewable installations in many countries, power system operators have less and less time to thoroughly analyze and investigate the grid integration issues. In consequence, sharing international experience from renewable grid integration is becoming more and more important.
Be a speaker! While bringing people together has always been the workshop’s purpose, it is the guests’ participation, their papers and their presentations that fill the frame with life. In 2000, the Wind Integration Workshop started with 4 sessions in total – in 2016 the large number of outstanding abstracts allowed for an exciting two-and-a-half day program with 26 sessions. To maintain this high standard, all professionals in the area of the integration of renewable energy into power systems are encouraged to submit abstracts. Be a speaker!
Contents Over the past years, the Wind Integration Workshop has always succeeded in reflecting the shifting focuses in the area of wind integration. While the focus of the first workshop was on HVDC transmission technology, including HVDC transmission networks, the key topics have changed continuously. Modelling issues, national grid integration experience, market issues as well as grid code issues were key topics of previous workshops. This way, the workshop has developed into a renowned international platform for discussing the subject of grid integration of wind power into existing power systems.
Combination is key
Since 2011 the Wind Integration Workshop is preceded by the Solar Integration Workshop. As there are many topics that are relevant for both the integration of wind and solar energy into power systems, the two Workshops are complementary. The programs of the two Workshops are specially designed to include sessions that are suitable for both interest groups on the shared Wednesday, i.e. grid codes, storage, forecasting, and many more. The Workshop pricing structure allows for cross-workshop booking, so think about combining both Workshops or adding half a day or a day to your stay.
