Optimizing Wind Power Performance

Start Date:27 Sep 11 End Date:28 Sep 11

Optimizing Wind Power Performance is a crucial annual meeting which brings the major wind energy players together to discuss the changing face of the industry. Attendees will network with project owners, OEMs, O&Ms and technical experts over two days of case studies and high-level speaker presentations.

80% of US energy to be made from clean energy by 2035? But how to make the most of wind power? In 2011, nearly $40 billion worth of wind installations in the U.S. come out of warranty. This leaves wind farm operators and owners with two major dilemmas; managing the post-warranty process and what to do next.

Coupled with warranty expiration, many wind farm owners are finding that they have responsibility for parks that were not optimally designed. Steps can be taken to rectify this (such as moving turbines) but they are expensive, time consuming and will affect the short term production of power. Other routes to optimization rely on effective data management and a deep understanding of forecasting in order to create accurate measures of potential. Many tools exist in the market place but they are often poorly understood and badly deployed.

Key reasons to attend
• See how the post-warranty environment will change operator/owner business models
• Find out what impact outsourcing will have upon your business and weigh up the pros and cons of in-sourcing versus outsourcing
• Understand how to turn data into knowledge and apply it to get the best out of your plant
• Assess the changing role of the OEM as sources of project finance
• Network with a senior delegation of operators, owners, utilities, OEMs and technical experts

Confirmed speakers include:
• José Peñarrubia – director of construction, Acciona Energy
• Dr Karl-Heinz Mertins – director technology and operations, Exelon Wind
• Ted Hofbauer – director, asset management, Pattern Energy
• Kevin Borgia – executive director, Illinois Wind Energy Association
• Dan Juhl – chief executive officer, Juhl Wind
