European Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind)

A dedicated voice for Technology and Policy R&D, speaking for the wind energy sector and its stakeholders.

Working Group 3: Grid Integration

Description

The scope of this Working Group work extends from the single (large) wind farm level (onshore and offshore) to the large-scale integration in the power system level. The layout and basic structure of the grid need to be adapted to large amounts of variable electricity supply.

Key areas in this thematic may include: Grid codes/communication standards, Grid structure and planning, Grid operation and energy management (prediction tools, probabilistic capacity planning, storage facilities), Energy market integration (converting stochastic wind energy production into energy market products, providing additional grid services to TSO's and DSO's).

Composition

A Working Group is composed of a small number of high-level persons willing to participate to the work of the Technology Platform. Working Groups members are selected from a call of expression of interest launched by the Secretariat. Selection is performed by the Steering Committee based on objective criteria.

Members

The Chairperson of Working Group 3 is Mr. G. Kariniotakis (Mines ParisTech). Mr. Kariniotakis was elected at the 14th Steering Committee meeting, in October 2012.

The Secretary of Working Group 3 is Mr. G. Giebel (DTU Wind).

Members of the group were selected through a Call for Expression of Interest, launched by the Secretariat of the Technology Platform. The call closed on 1 October 2010.
