Webinar: IEA Wind Task 25 Final Report
January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Featured Speaker: Hannele Holttinen, Senior Adviser, Partner, Recognis Oy. Finland
About the Webinar: This webinar will summarize findings on wind and solar integration, both real experience and studies, as reported from the 17 countries participating in the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Wind TCP) Task 25. It is based on the recently published summary report, ”Design and Operation of Energy Systems with Large Amounts of Variable Generation.” The main issues regarding wind and solar impacts on power systems, from national case studies, address both long-term planning issues and short-term operational impacts. Long-term planning issues include grid planning and resource adequacy. Short-term operational impacts include reliability, stability, reserves, and maximizing the value of wind in operational timescales. Findings on variability and uncertainty of power system-wide wind power are covered. Recent studies toward 100% shares of renewables are also presented. Access to the Summary Report may be found at 10.32040/2242-122X.2021.T396.
