Sessions - WindEurope Annual Event 2022 in Bilbao


Grid/System integration: the latest technologies

Electrification & System Integration

When: Tuesday, 5 April 2022, 16:30 - 18:00
Where: Luxua 1 - Level 3

Session description

Wind energy will become the backbone of Europe’s energy system and is estimated by The International Energy Agency (IEA) to be the largest power source in Europe by 2027. Research is essential to identify and quantify the stability needs of the future power system. Particularly, we need to develop innovative technologies to further enhance the interconnection between wind power plants and grids, and to define advanced concepts and to develop robust technologies for system integration to transfer wind power quickly, efficiently, and safely from the production site to the consumption points.
