TWENTIES

Large–scale integration of wind power

Tuesday, 15 March
11:00 - 13:00
Room 1101A, Brussels Expo

TWENTIES

Seventh Framework Programme


Workshop Overview

TWENTIES, an EU-funded project, uses six demonstrations to examine barriers to accommodating the amount of wind energy required to reach the EU’s 2020 targets. Demonstrations address:

  • system services (voltage and frequency) provided by wind farms;
  • the feasibility of Virtual Power Plants combining wind farm operations and flexible generation and loads;
  • increased grid flexibility (including power flow control devices and dynamic line rating);
  • configurations and critical components for secure off-shore meshed networks;
  • strategies for balancing large off-shore shut downs under stormy conditions;
  • streamlined permitting processes of off-shore wind farms;

This event updated participants on the interim results of each demonstration.
