Digital Drop-in Sessions

We are continuing to explore and implement new technologies and are actively increasing investment in new digital solutions. These purposeful, practical technology-based products and solutions are designed to solve some of the biggest challenges owners and asset managers face as renewable deployment continues at pace around the world.

Digital goes beyond software and insights; it encompasses tangible outcomes from assets. From data access to spot potential problems before they even occur, to hardware on your turbines to enhance yield and control system augmentation to action those insights, the potential is huge. Digital and technology solutions can improve production, reduce operational costs and lower downtime – all of which will accelerate us on the journey to create a future where everyone has access to affordable zero carbon energy.

Be one of the first to hear about our ground-breaking innovations by dropping into one of our digital sessions (9:30-10:00 or 15:00-15:30) at the RES Lounge.

Planning future wind and grid infrastructure

Wednesday 20 March 2024 at 14:00 – 15:15. Auditorium 1

Wind energy has rapidly expanded over the past decades and now accounts for 19% of Europe’s electricity supply. But the necessary upgrade and expansion of grid infrastructure has not followed the same pace, leading to congestion and curtailments. This session will explore how the planning of energy infrastructure – generation assets, gas and electricity grids – could be optimised to avoid future congestion and ensure that Europeans get the most out of their homegrown clean electricity.

Speakers:  Matilda Afzelius (CEO Nordics), Chair: Lindsay McQuade (Director of Energy, EMEA, Amazon Web Services), Rebecca Sedler (Managing Director – Interconnectors, National Grid), Stefan Kapferer, (Chairman of the Management Board, 50Hertz), Pieter van Aartsen (Board Member, GIE), Catharina Sikow-Magny (Director, European Commission).

Resource assessment Pt4

Thursday 21 March 2024 at 17:30 – 18:30

The Resource Assessment 4 session combines three different views and approaches to estimating energy production and losses, showing how powerful and versatile the resource assessment toolbox is. The audience will first learn to assess the variability of wind speed and annual energy production using a polynomial surrogate based on the Polynomial Chaos Expansion (PCE) to quantify uncertainty, requiring only a few CFD simulations. Examples of complex terrain are given with selected examples of forested areas. This low-cost computational approach is followed by the opposite. A massive multi-GPU large eddy simulation of the North Sea Offshore Wind Energy Scenario 2050 will show how the wake effects of large wind farm clusters affect vertical mixing, wind climate as well as clouds, rain and temperatures. The final part will show how SCADA data and machine learning can be used to estimate wake-free turbine production to assess wake losses in operating wind farms.

Speakers: Karen Anne Hutton, Technical Director will be co-chairing a session with Stephan Barth, Managing Director at ForWind – University of Oldenburg. Presenters in this session include Zahra Lakdawala (Research Scientist, Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES), Remco Verzijlbergh (CEO, Whiffle), Clément Jacquet (Senior Researcher, EPRI).
