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