Session description

  • How can offshore wind support the grid by providing ancillary services such as balancing and inertia?
  • In light of the recent partial black-out that struck the UK’s public transport system of the summer, after a gas plant and an offshore wind farm went offline within seconds of each other, what is the potential use of batteries and storage to mitigate such events?
