Day three, 10 September

Presentation of the results of the CREYAP comparison exercise


CREYAP stands for “Comparison of Resource and Energy Yield Assessment Procedures”. In the CREYAP 2021, pre-construction wind data will be used by the participants (wind analysts/engineers/researchers) to estimate the annual energy yield of the operating Walney Extension offshore wind farm. CREYAP 2021 will enable DTU to benchmark the estimated energy yields from the participants against actual energy yields from the Walney Extension offshore wind farm. At this session, DTU will present the results from the benchmark and draw conclusions on main sources of discrepancies among participants. The latest CREYAP was run in 2015, and this new CREYAP 2021 will allow us to assess how the wind energy sector has developed and understand where wind analysts need to focus to continue developing this area.

Are you … series?


Is Wind Resource Analysis prepared to step into the Time Domain? The answer to this question is not so obvious. In this session, sponsored by the Wind Resource Assessment Group (WRAG), experts from both sides of the debate will try to enlighten the audience about this relevant challenge

Climate change challenges


Climate Change is recognized worldwide as one of the biggest challenges that humanity will face in the coming years. Most countries are already executing policies and actions to reduce its impact by promoting and implementing conducts and technologies that reduce greenhouse effect emissions. These actions, together with the remarkable development of the technology, are pushing for a big wind energy growth. But, at the same time, Climate Change might have a significant impact on risks and performance of wind farms, which is an important matter of concern in the wind industry. In this session we will explore new methods to disclose the impacts of the risks and opportunities created by climate change, as well as new methods to assess the potential effects of climate change on spatial, temporal and extremes wind distributions.
