What is the impact of different wind turbine technologies on the value of wind power in Europe? Ea Energy Analyses, together with the working group of IEA Wind TCP Task 26, has analyzed the effects of advanced wind turbine designs on the European power system. The study focuses on the market value of wind and total system costs arising from different combinations of wind turbine hub height and specific power. The ongoing transformation of the power system increases the importance of integrating variable renewable energy. Very high wind penetration rates pose challenges to system operation and put downward pressure on the market value of wind power. Among ...

IEA Wind TCP Publishes Recommended Practices for Floating LiDAR Systems Floating LiDAR systems (FLS) have emerged as wind resource assessment tools for offshore wind farms, with the potential for greatly reduced installation costs compared to fixed met masts in some cases. The challenges that FLS face and have to overcome to be considered as effective wind measurement options can broadly be grouped in two categories: The movement of the sea imparting motion on the LiDAR, and the subsequent challenge of maintaining wind speed and direction accuracy; The remoteness of the deployed system necessitating robust, autonomous and reliable operation of measurement, ...

IEA Wind TCP 2016 Annual Report Highlights from the IEA Wind TCP global network advancing wind energy development In 2016, 54 GW of new wind power capacity were installed worldwide and wind-generated electricity met 4% of the world’s electricity demand. Wind power system performance and reliability continued to improve throughout the year, and costs proved even more competitive with record low tenders during the year. Approximately 84% of the total worldwide wind power capacity (413 GW), and all of the world’s offshore wind capacity, currently resides in the countries participating in the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration ...
