Presenter: Keir Harman, Renewables Operations Director 
Presentation: Operating in a Subsidy Free Market – the age of flexible and dynamic wind farm operation 
Date/time: Thursday 20 September 2018/11:00-11:25 
Presentation abstract: The destiny of wind farm operations relies upon an ability to meet the cost of energy needed to operate in subsidy free markets while meeting the additional challenges that unprecedented levels of renewables on grid networks brings. At the same time as capex and opex is reducing, the energy captured over the lifetime of the assets must increase. New developments in the approach to dynamic operations can drive up energy capture and increase lifetime. Implementing power-plant closed loop control, including wake steering, increases energy whilst significantly reducing fatigue loading and ultimately extending life. Real-time communications, advanced data analytics and accurate forecasting unleashes the capability for the turbines to operate as a flexible power-plant.
