The second edition of EWEA Technical Workshop on Wind Power Forecasting took place in Leuven, Belgium on 1-2 October 2015 at the Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe.

With support schemes for renewables becoming increasingly linked to market dynamics, determining the average power output of a wind farm is not only essential at the outset of a project, but also on a day-to-day basis to determine more precisely trading positions in short-term power markets, as well as to meet increasing balancing responsibilities. This workshop addressed both, the long and short term dimensions of wind power forecasting, which will be crucial for the commercial success for wind power plant developers, owners, aggregators and all financial stakeholders involved, as well as system operators and forecast providers.

The workshop covered the following topics:

  • Users’ perspective and experience
  • Numerical weather prediction models
  • Wind power forecasting models and operational systems
  • Special Applications
  • Grid Integration
  • Concluded by an interactive session crowdsourcing the future
