RenewableUK Global Offshore Wind 2018

The UK has been the world leader in offshore wind since October 2008, with as much capacity already installed as the rest of the world combined. The total offshore generating capacity in UK waters provides around 8 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity annually, equivalent to the electricity consumption of around 2 million homes.

Proud to support
DNV GL are proud to be exhibiting at RenewableUK Global Offshore Wind 2018. We will be located on stand 126.

Presenting expertise
Experts from DNV GL will showcase offshore wind expertise during the conference:

Session: B8: Resource Assessment
Date/time: Wednesday 20th June/14:15-15:30
Presentation:Decrease Offshore Wind LCoE Through a Global Validation of Mesoscale Models
Presenter: Marie-Anne Cowan, Senior Engineer, Renewable Energy Analytics, DNV GL
Abstract: Accuracy and cost-effectiveness of wind resource assessments are crucial in an increasingly competitive auction driven offshore market. DNVGL has undertaken mesoscale modelling of three offshore regions: The North Sea, English Channel, and Taiwan, using DNV GL’s Virtual Met Data (VMD). VMD uses advanced atmospheric modelling driven by reanalysis datasets to produce site specific long-term virtual time series or wind maps.
The outcome of this work is a better understanding of the performance of mesoscale models offshore globally. This builds confidence in the use of mesoscale modelling, decreasing the need for on-site measurements whilst maintaining similar levels of uncertainty.
Marie-Anne has ten years’ experience in the wind industry and is a Chartered Engineer with the IMechE. She is a Senior Engineer in the Project Development team at DNV GL and a technical lead on offshore wind resource and energy yield assessments in the UK region. She has overseen the delivery of energy yield analyses for several offshore wind farms with a total name-plate capacity of over 7 GW. Marie-Anne has a Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Cambridge.
