IEA Wind Task 36: Forecasting for Wind Power. An Overview.

30 min talk by Operating Agent Gregor Giebel (DTU Wind Energy) and co-Operating Agent Will Shaw (PNNL), followed by 30 min opportunity for questions.

IEA Wind Task 36 is distributed into three pillars, WP1 for a collaboration on improvements in meteorology, WP2 for power forecasting, benchmarking, and trials, and WP3 for the best practice in the use of the (probabilistic) forecasts. Here, we discuss the information portal and how to collaborate for phase II of the Task, running from 2019-2021.

The IEA Recommended Practice on Forecast Solution Selection

30 min talk by WEPROG CEO Corinna Möhrlen, Vaisala’s Forecast Team Manager Jeff Lerner, and John Zack, Global Lead of Grid Solutions at UL (formerly AWS TruePower), followed by 30 min for questions.

Selecting a new or another forecasting service is difficult and, especially for first-timers, prone to errors. The IEA Recommended Practice provides guidance for industry and academia for the acquisition and evaluation of the optimal forecast solution for the specific application intended.

Probabilistic Forecasting in Practice

30 min talk by WEPROG CEO Corinna Möhrlen and Ricardo Bessa, Senior Researcher at INESC TEC,  followed by 30 min opportunity for questions.

While deterministic forecasts are still the norm in many utilities, uses of probabilistic forecasts are getting more frequent. We present actual use cases of exploiting the full information contained in probabilistic forecasts and give a general guideline on how to make sense of the extra information provided.

How to run 40+% of wind in the Danish system

30 min talk by Energinet Model Developer Lasse  Borup, followed by 30 min opportunity for questions.

Denmark has been the country with the first operative wind power forecasts, in 1993 and 1994 (east and west DK, respectively). Long-time forecast user Lasse Borup recounts how to handle entire days with over 100% wind power in the grid, and which other measures are employed to make even more wind power possible.
