Session description

Many years of expansion in wind power across Europe have given us a world-leading industry. We've benefited from strong markets in most countries at some point the last 20 years. But in the last few years, we've seen stagnation in many markets, and growth concentrated in just a few. In 2015, Germany accounted for over half of all new installations. A number of the markets that have historically been engines of growth, are currently struggling with abrupt regulatory changes.

This session will look at the future of wind energy in Europe. Michael Liebreich, Chairman and Founder of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, will start the session with an overview of the prospects and challenges for the sector in Europe. A discussion on the outlook of onshore and offshore wind power follows involving industry leaders and European policymakers.

Session description

Energy markets are changing. In Europe, wind power spearheads the energy transition today and that is set to continue if innovation stays on track. As the technology matures and wind power covers a growing share of the electricity mix, the key to competitive edge increasingly lies in providing system solutions that are both cost-effective and contribute to a secure and well-functioning power system.

A number of leading European wind energy manufacturers and suppliers are already developing these solutions. But they are facing ever stiffer global competition.

In this session, industry leaders will outline their vision for the wind power industry, comment on current technology trends and present their view on how to maintain competitive edge in a time of transition.

 14:30 - 16:00 POWER CONVERSION 
Room: Hall G1 
Turbine technology 

 

Session description

The session focuses on conversion systems for wind turbines based on power electronics, mainly for off-shore applications. The trend of higher power brings several challenges related to compliance with grid requirements. Harmonics and resonances become crucial issues that require proper analysis and innovative yet practical solutions. This session covers aspects related to power converter architectures and the modulation and control of the converter. We will look at the interaction with the electrical grid as well as practical aspects about how to optimise the primary control in different wind conditions and how to effectively test the control of large-scale wind systems in emulated conditions.

Room: Hall E 
Market Developments 
Session audio recording:
Loading the player...

 

Session description

Repowering is an important option in many markets, but operators need to investigate the economic case project by project, as conditions may vary considerably. Repowering has potential implications for short and medium EU renewable energy targets as it allows the further development of sites with good wind resources with more efficient turbines. As wind energy assets get older and are decommissioned, overall wind power production will decrease, affecting the share of electricity that the EU has committed to source from renewables by 2020 and 2030.

WindEurope is working on end-of-life issues and repowering, assessing the current situation, conducting surveys on national regulations and examining the economic case of the different options. This session will investigate repowering and life extension experiences across different EU countries, the business case for extending and repowering projects and the implications for EU energy policy.

 14:30 - 16:00 WIND ENERGY IN A DIGITISED WORLD 
Room: Hall D 
Research & Innovation 

 

Session description

The world economy is going digital, and the wind power sector is no exception. Major manufacturers and operators are all rolling out industrial internet solutions to improve the performance and reliability of their turbines while bringing assembly and maintenance costs down. Digitisation is key to integrate even larger amounts of wind energy into the grid. The combination of unprecedented data collection and computing power opens a wide range of new possibilities to make wind power ever more competitive. However, when it comes to digitisation, the wind energy sector is still in its infancy compared to other industrial sectors.

This session will look at the digitisation of the wind energy sector and ask the following questions: What are the challenges and bottlenecks? Which success stories look promising? What can be learned from other, more advanced, industries? Where should R&I efforts focus and in which area should the collaboration be encouraged?

 17:00 - 18:30 INNOVATIVE ROTOR DESIGN 
Room: Hall G1 
Turbine technology 
Session audio recording:
Loading the player...

 

Session description

In the conversion of wind power, the rotor is the first point of energy transformation, transforming the kinetic energy of the wind into torque and rotation. Rotor technology sets a limit of the energy converted and the loading required to convert this energy. The load cycles are design drivers, influencing the mass and operation of the rotor, and therefore the entire turbine. In addition to extracting kinetic energy from the flow, the rotor creates a pressure field that generates the wake and leads to noise generation. Rotor design optimisation must therefore account for power and load optimisation, constrained by the full lifecycle, fatigue life and noise, among other boundary conditions. This session focus on innovations in both rotor design methodologies and components.

Room: Hall G2 
Resource assessment 

 

Session description

Advanced modelling methods are now standard in wind estimating modelling of annual energy production (AEP). In this session, speakers will present round robin tests of models for spatial variability of wind resource on projects using different modelling approaches. We will look at the consequences of including atmospheric stability in the calculation of AEP offshore and how you can measure wind profiles at heights of 100-200 metres by using LIDARs with emphasis on charactering extreme shear situations such as low-level jets causing extreme loads. Finally, we will hear about the variability of turbulence intensities measured offshore.

Integrating wind power into the electricity market 

 

Session description

In 2015 wind power accounted for 44% of all new power installations across Europe – more than any other technology. Wind power covers 12% of Europe’s electricity demand. In 2030, wind power could serve a quarter of the EU’s electricity needs and be the backbone of Europe’s energy system. This has and will have a major impact on how future energy systems operate. The wind power industry plays a fundamental role in this transition. This session will look at the challenges and opportunities this presents and give examples on how wind can support the energy transition.

Session description

The EU will not achieve its climate and energy objectives unless we put electricity into transport and heating. The good news is that an increasing number of motor manufacturers are rapidly developing electric mobility. For renewable heating and cooling, the technologies are mature and readily available. The electrification of these sectors will increase power demand and direct new investments in renewable technologies such as wind energy. Exploiting synergies across the entire energy system can maximise cost-efficient solutions for decarbonisation and a modernisation of energy systems in Europe.

This session will discuss the road ahead for combining renewable power and the uptake of electric vehicles and an increased use of renewable heating. The panel will address the following questions: What will drive electro-mobility forward in all EU Member States? How can we create market conditions that will unlock the benefits of electrification in the heating and cooling sector? How to design the future power infrastructure in order to facilitate variable wind power and electrify sectors? To what extent can wind power and sectors such as transport, heating and cooling serve each other’s needs going forward?

Room: Hall G2 
Resource assessment 
Session audio recording:
Loading the player...

 

Session description

Sites subject to cold climate not only have temperatures outside the normal limits of standard wind turbines but also atmospheric icing conditions which are frequent and may account for a significant loss in annual production. This session addresses the most recent advancements in the field of atmospheric icing effects on wind resource yield assessment. Assessing, measuring and estimating icing losses in the resource assessment phase of a project is of crucial importance for the successful business case of a wind farm in cold climates. Icing of the rotor blades can significantly reduce the energy yield of a wind farm up to 10% or more of the annual production and it also influences wind measurements by reducing availability.

Session description

Distributed generation can offer clear benefits but also challenges for existing distribution systems. Wind and photovoltaic power from rural areas cause voltage fluctuations and over-voltages after disturbances. High-voltage ride through (HVRT) testing procedures, pilot projects, guideline and code drafting all help to address the HVRT requirement for distributed generation. Using smart components such as line voltage regulators and smart transformers, which include power-electronics and reactive-power compensation, are among other ways to stabilise distribution-level voltage. Applying International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards, ensuring cybersecurity and deploying real-time data exchange communication between wind farms and the distribution system operator (DSO) can easily control and facilitate the integration of more wind power into distribution networks.

Session description

Offshore wind has successfully overcome many technical and cost challenges in recent years and grown at an impressive rate. However, investor appetite for this asset class remains mixed; many investors see considerable opportunities and lower risks, but others still shy away from the sector. This session will discuss what is positively and negatively affecting confidence levels, whether the risks are real or perceptual, and what can be done by the sector to further improve confidence. Overall, we will seek to answer the question - is offshore wind power now a mature asset class?

Session description

Numerical weather prediction models are increasingly being used for the estimation of wind resources over large regions. The large-scale wind resource maps resulting from such models are useful to identify favourable regions for wind energy deployment in the prospection phase. Often reanalysis data is used as the input for these models and one these datasets, MERRA from NASA, has recently been replaced by MERRA2. We will discuss the consequences of this change along with using micro-scale models to downscale. Speakers will also address the important subject of modelling storms using a coupled numerical weather model a spectral wave model.

Session description

As the wind power industry moves towards competitiveness with thermal generation, support mechanisms will become less important. This will mean investors face a shift in the mix of risk in wind power investments. How will those risks be allocated? The scope for innovation in risk management will need to broaden, and risk protection providers will have to sharpen their suite of tools to get the work done. This session will review where the state of the art is today, and what the industry can expect for the future.

Session description

In this session we will get deep into the forest! We will look at how computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can be used in modelling the flow in forested areas, how to model profiles and also the turbulence. Different models will be applied and there will be lots of data from real forested sites around the world. The effects of using different input data will be investigated, and the use of lidar LIDAR scans to estimate roughness and other forest related parameters will be discussed. We will also hear about a series of experiments aiming amongst others to improve our understanding of flow in forested areas.

Session description

DONG Energy’s auction price for the Borssele Wind Farm Sites I and II turned out to be a game changer. In this interactive session you can learn how the Dutch government helped drive down the costs of offshore wind as the co-developer of offshore wind projects. Is this the way forward to an era of booming offshore wind without subsidies? DONG Energy explains how as co-developer a government can successfully take part in a winning business strategy. The transmission systems operator TenneT presents the advantages of constructing five standardised platforms. After these presentations we will invite the audience to take part in a lively debate with the speakers.

Keynote speaker René Moor gives a glimpse of his presentation: "The Borssele 1 and 2 auction price was a giant leap in the development of the industry. Offshore wind turned out to be cheaper than we thought. Now it can have a bigger role in the transition towards sustainable energy supply. This should be the first step towards an era where offshore wind is competitive without subsidies and become one of the major climate neutral sources of electricity."

 09:00 - 10:30 MAKING ELECTRICITY MARKETS FIT FOR WIND 
Room: Hall D 
Integrating wind power into the electricity market 

 

Session description

Wind power is variable and dependent on the weather, so fundamentally different from classic fuel-based power. Electricity markets wereoriginally designed with conventional central power stations in mind, but the developments in the last two decades have introduced ever larger amounts of renewable energy.

The session provides an overview of the different markets for wind power, and on the role wind power can play in those. The main angle of the session is money, but the underlying need to balance the grid at all times can be monetized in different ways. The session also shows how wind power can be a good grid citizen, and get access to different income than just to sell the power.

Environmental impacts & social acceptance 

 

Session description

This session will explore various technologies and methodologies to analyse and mitigate noise and visual impacts of wind farms. It will focus in particular on the capacity of the various technologies to foster acceptance among citizens living around a wind farm. Preventing negative impacts of wind farms on people means reducing noise and visual impact.

Chair and speakers will involve the audience by discussing the various examples of projects using these technologies. With the help of these examples, we will try to find out why certain technologies help to foster acceptance while others do not.

Session description

Replacing Europe’s fossil-fuelled generation assets with renewable energy will require significant and sustained investments for decades to come. Certainty for private investors is crucial to complete the energy transition. However, in recent years abrupt - and in some cases retroactive - changes to support schemes and planning and permitting regimes have caused substantial losses for investors and created uncertainty for wind projects in several European markets. As a result, new wind investments are increasingly concentrated in a smaller number of markets, with Germany accounting for 50% in 2015.

What can be done to protect investors against retroactive changes and restore confidence in the markets that have been marred by political flip-flopping?

Room: Hall D 
Market Developments 

 

Session description

On 23 June, the UK voted to leave the European Union. The decision rocked global markets, sent the pound tumbling and plunged Europe’s economic and political future into a wave of uncertainty. As the dust settles, the WindEurope Summit looks at what a UK outside the EU will mean for the deployment of wind energy and the prospects for the industry at-large.

The UK has been a market of mixed fortunes for wind energy in recent years. The onshore wind market is still reeling from abrupt cutbacks to support imposed by the last government. The changes mean that onshore wind deployment is likely to grind to a halt in 2016 and beyond as investor confidence dwindles and developers look elsewhere.

The story for offshore wind couldn’t be more different. Record investment and a series of large-scale projects mean the UK is a top destination for offshore wind development globally with over €10 billion of new capacity financed in the first six months of 2016. The previous Conservative government committed to three more auctions (CfDs) by 2020, assuming the industry meets its cost reduction targets. Policymakers have also outlined plans to add 1GW of offshore wind a year toward 2030.

In this session, the WindEurope Summit will bring together industry, lawmakers and experts to discuss the implications of the Brexit vote for onshore and offshore wind in the UK. Participants will provide brief opening statements followed by a panel discussion and questions for the audience.
