Wind + solar + storage… and more? Hybrid systems
When: Friday, 28 September 2018, 13:00 - 14:15
Where: Room: Hamburg
This session addresses the technical challenges and benefits of integrating wind energy into hybrid systems along with other weather-dependent renewable sources and storage. We will start by considering microgrids for off-grid applications or rural areas, powered by different technologies like wind, solar, diesel and storage. We will then discuss the feasibility of such solutions and identify the benefits of integrating wind into these kinds of system. Combining wind with storage can also be a good option to replace diesel gen sets that are used today to supply auxiliaries at off-shore wind farms. During the session, we will analyse whether this kind of option has the capacity to meet the requirements for autonomy in the case of islanding. For interconnected systems, renewables can be combined with storage devices for a more dispatchable power output with load-following capabilities. In that case, the questions of storage dimensioning and economics are crucial. Finally, the session will address the optimised use of renewable generation in combination with land use and infrastructure in hybrid power plants.
- R&D results in alternative pathways towards the energy transition. Although the focus in the past has been on large-scale wind farms, the development of smart grid technologies brings opportunities for new applications of wind energy.
- Experience of coupling wind energy with storage in different applications as an alternative to conventional gen sets.
- Approaches to optimise the dimensioning and operation of hybrid systems integrating wind, but also other rarely-considered aspects such as land use.
