AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER, 25-26 October, Warwick, Rhode Island

As the first US wind farm connects to the grid, Natural Power will be attending AWEA's Offshore WINDPOWER conference from 25th to 26th October in the Crown Plaza Hotel Providence-Warwick, Warwick, Rhode Island.

Nancy McLean, Principal Consultant at Natural Power, will be presenting ‘Lessons learnt in delivering EIA for UK offshore wind: applications for the North American market' as part of the session ‘Practical Approaches to Project Design, Environmental Assessment and Permitting: Creating Value, Reducing Risk' on 26th October between 10.45hrs and 12.00hrs.


Natural Power will also be exhibiting at the event, located at stand 12.

The AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER program has cultivated a dedicated and thriving global community of top developers and experts, making it the largest and most successful gathering of offshore wind energy professionals in the United States.

The programme includes a variety of sessions, from a technology spotlight and developers' round table, to a special session providing an update on the National Offshore Wind Strategy, and an overview of what should be expected of the US offshore wind supply chain over the next decade. The event closes with a boat tour to Block Island Wind Farm, the first commercial wind farm in the US.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
