17:00 - 18:30 Making wind fit for the power system of the future
Integrating wind power into the electricity market  
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Hall F

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.

Learning objectives

  • Understand how large offshore wind power plants can contribute to overall system stability and take over ancillary services from conventional thermal power plants;
  • Learn how to safely estimate the capacity reserve that an offshore power plant can offer in the ancillary service market;
  • Discover potential disruptive technical solutions and emerging business models which may facilitate a proliferation of variable renewables;
  • Understand the implementation of grid code compliance certification to address the new harmonised grid codes across Europe.
This session will be chaired by:
George Kariniotakis, Professor, Head of Renewable Energies and Smartgrids Group, Centre PERSEE, MINES ParisTech, France
Alfredo Parres, Group Senior Vice President, Head of Wind Sector Initiative, ABB, Spain
