ACP Offshore WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition

Beijing renewable energy investment summit (BREIS) & China wind power 2019

Leaders in the industry will explore the opportunities for offshore wind in the U.S.

The Offshore WINDPOWER Conference and Exhibition, hosted by American Clean Power, brings together top experts and developers in the industry to discuss the advancements, opportunities and challenges needed to continue to grow offshore wind in the United States. DNV is proud to be a sponsor of this event.

Far-distant Offshore Wakes: How Far Is Too Far And Are We Getting It Right?

In 2019, DNV presented a validation of offshore wake models based on high-resolution production datasets from eight projects in Europe which significantly extended the envelope of historic validation datasets. In this study, the previous validation has been further extended to look at the performance of wake recovery assumptions in current engineering wake models compared to operational data. We’ll also discuss the implications of these findings on U.S. offshore development.

Importance of standardization and modularity in design of offshore grid

While offshore grid network can provide significant long-term benefits to both grid operators as well as end consumers, if not properly planned, may also lead to unnecessary burdens and additional un-accounted capital and operational expenditures. One of the key elements of such planning is to consider standardization and modularity between various components of offshore grid network. As part of this presentation, we will first introduce standardization and modularity and what it means for various offshore grid configurations. Then, we will review some of the global offshore installations and will present how (lack of ) standardization and modularity of components have impacted their reliability and financial performance.

Risk of Wind and Solar Lulls During Peak Load Events

DNV has combined its mesoscale modeling capabilities with an innovative stochastic engine model to quantify the frequency and magnitude of impactful events to developers, financiers and system planners. This includes the quantification of unique weather events that may cause resource scarcity, such as extended heatwaves and low wind and solar generation with coincident periods of high system load. DNV will use its stochastic engine to model 10,000 years of hourly wind, solar and load data to illustrate how the inclusion of offshore wind can help to complement existing DER and increase confidence in grid resiliency risk assessments in the BOEM lease areas. We will present analysis of the modeling results and highlight the impact that concurrent heatwaves with wind and solar droughts can have on system net load and how to mitigate the associated risks.

U.S. Offshore Wind Resource- What Happens in Europe Stays in Europe?

What have we learned about the U.S. offshore wind resource and how relatable is it to the vast amount of data collected in Europe? In this presentation we will present findings with respect to the U.S. east coast wind resource and how it compares with data from Europe particularly the North Sea which is considered comparable to the U.S. in terms of wind resource and metocean characteristics. We will highlight any unique characteristics in the U.S. and potential pitfalls the findings may pose in wind resource and energy yield assessment modeling.
