What can you learn in the expert sessions?

EXTRACTING MORE VALUE FROM WIND FARM SCADA DATA  10:45-11:15

For wind farm operators, factors such as environmental and grid-related derating, decisions about lifetime extensions, the financial impacts of climate variations, ongoing maintenance strategies, and contract negotiations for availability calculations result in many sleepless nights. But thankfully, help is on the way.

3E has recently joined forces with LivLiner, a spin-off of the Free University of Brussels, to leverage high-frequency SCADA data using the latest machine learning algorithms. Combining 3E’s meteorological modelling, forecasting, wind farm and grid modelling expertise with LivLiner’s advanced AI methods, we deliver new and actionable insights for wind energy portfolio managers. Join the webinar to learn more about key factors such as preventive maintenance, component-based downtime analysis, and generating loss breakdowns compared to business models.

STORAGE: WHY? WHAT? HOW? 11:15-11:45

Given the increasing need for flexibility on the electricity grid, storage nowadays is gaining a lot of momentum. In many countries, investment in storage is stimulated, resulting in different options to built up a profitable business case. This presentation defines the need for flexibility, the potential to generate project revenue and the risks to mitigate in order to ensure a successful investment in storage.

PORTFOLIO EFFECT IN LONG TERM ENERGY YIELD ASSESSMENT (LTYA)  11:45-12:15

In this session, you will learn about the “portfolio effect” and how it relates to wind and solar plants. Diversifying an asset portfolio reduces the investment risk, and it is possible to quantify this benefit by assessing the dependency of each asset and the reduction of production uncertainty across the entire portfolio. Specifically for wind and solar projects, we will explore how you need to treat each uncertainty component to generate and maintain profitable outcomes.

UPDATE ON REGULATORY CHANGES FOR PV IN SPAIN  11:45-12:15

This session will update you on all of the new regulations for PV grid connection in Spain.
The Spanish government has introduced a new Royal Decree (1183/2020) and Circular (1/2021), and another important Circular will follow after this coming summer. We will guide you through the details of this Royal Decree and give you valuable insights into the driving factors behind these new regulations.
