Event Information

This September the Global Wind Summit in Hamburg is the biggest and most important meeting of the wind industry worldwide. It combines the world’s leading expo for wind energy - WindEnergy Hamburg and the global conference of WindEurope to create a high-powered, unique platform for business, networking and information - onshore and offshore. These two top events, the expo and the conference, will be held side by side from 25 to 28 September 2018 at the Hamburg Messe site.

Meet our DNV GL - Energy experts at Hall B4, Stand 330 at Wind Energy and don't miss the chance to attend our presentations at Wind Europe. We are looking forward to welcoming and discuss the opportunities, challenges and future developments of the global wind industry.

    Launch of the Energy Transition Outlook Report 2018

    The DNV GL Energy Transition Outlook Report models the energy transition from fossil to renewable energy and provides meaningful world-class reports on the nature, timing and industry implications of the transition. It represents an independent forecast of the global energy future and is based on our own independent energy model, which tracks and forecasts regional energy demand and supply as well as energy transport between regions. This includes the electrification of energy demand; Energy infrastructure; Energy storage and other flexibility options; Energy efficiency; and the impact of digitization. In the breakfast session DNV GL will give you an overview as well as present the key findings of this newly launched report.

    Joint Industry Project: Standardized test method for concrete fatigue, call for partners

    Is concrete fatigue a design driver for your energy projects? Then please join our Joint Industry Project (JIP) on standardized concrete compression fatigue testing in order to go beyond current design methods. The proposed JIP will be presented in a short. The project parameters like scope, budget, and timeline will be discussed. The JIP is directed at stakeholders who will benefit from the more optimized test and design methods (e.g. developers and owners together with concrete and grout manufacturers). It is further the hope to get all institutes who are performing fatigue tests involved in the JIP to bring together all available knowledge and data.

    Joint Industry Project: BLARE – Blade Repair

    The project aims at bringing together the interests and knowledge of the different stakeholders in the field of blade repair to improve maintenance and repair strategies and to ensure repair quality. The main goal is to set up a database for damages/repairs on blades in operation. This meeting is a call for partners to join that project, which is intended as a 2 year’s project, from the beginning of 2019 until the end of 2020.

    LCoE based turbine and wind farm design

    The design of the main components in a wind turbine and wind farm all interact. The optimum design of a wind turbine and wind farm which yields the lowest cost of energy can only be achieved by taking an integrated design approach. This means that components of the wind turbine or wind farm cannot be designed in isolation, and the related cost implications on other components needs to be quantified when making design choices. Turbine.Architect is DNV GL’s engineering based cost of energy tool and it has been designed to support the integrated design approach. It has proved its usefulness for both turbine OEMs and wind farm developers. This session will present Turbine.Architect alongside other LCoE reduction techniques such as wind farm control.

    MyCertificate – the world’s first interactive certification configurator for wind turbines

    DNV GL will introduce the world’s first interactive certification tool for wind turbines. This new tool will assist turbine manufacturers and support their customers in finding the most suitable turbine for their individual needs. In the short presentation will introduce the features of the new tool which decrease the complexity of multi-variant certificates and help to keep a good overview of certified configurations and ongoing certifications. The certification of additional turbine configurations can easily be requested online. For end-users the new tool helps to ensure and check the authenticity of certificates.

    Latest trends in offshore wind markets and technology

    During this 60 min’s side event you will receive updates and have possibility to discuss on what is trending in the offshore wind segment with three of our DNV GL Offshore Wind experts. Senior Offshore Wind expert Magnus Ebbesen will share the latest technology development in floating wind and discuss the potential from a LCOE perspective of this new foundation technology. Offshore wind Business Leader Simon Cox will discuss the approach and possibilities for life time extension – a huge potential for the industry with 16 GW of offshore wind operating in Europe. It is key that project start planning and collecting data to maximum the value of life time extension. Offshore Wind Segment Leader Peter C. Brun will discuss risk and opportunities in new emerging offshore wind markets outside Europe. What is missing for real market acceleration in selected markets in APAC and North America.

    Certification goes Digital

    Digitalization is on everyone’s lips and digital topics are getting more and more important, also in Certification. That certification of tower internals can be done without exchanging numerous drawings but by exchanging stp files and structural reports. Furthermore the communication will be online by the DNV GL developed tool “STRUCTURE INSIGHT”. The short presentation during WindEnergy is of special interest for Wind Turbine Manufacturers and their sub-suppliers for Tower Internals or Designers for Secondary Steel.

    Certification of energy storage systems

    The market for grid-scale energy storage systems is relatively unexplored in the view of a certification body. Needed industry standards are still missing/under development and no straightforward way to full system certification exists. To support the grid-scale energy market, DNV GL published its recommended practice GRIDSTOR which can be used as technical basis for certification. DNV GL – Energy, Renewables Certification will present a flexible certification process combining well established procedure from wind area with actual available technical requirements for energy storage systems.

    German Renewable Energy Assets for Asian-Pacific Investors (Focus: On-/Offshore Wind, Solar PV)

    The M&A market for Renewable Energy Assets in Germany (with a focus on Wind On-/Offshore and Solar/PV) is currently characterized by an increasing interest of investors from the APAC region. If you belong to this group of investors, we invite you to learn about the key risks (and how to mitigate them!) and upsides for such investments in Germany with regard to topics like regulation environment and FiT or price schemes. Being one of the leading technical consultants for such assets in Germany, we can provide you with an expert overview of the asset types and characteristics you will observe if you are looking at Germany as an investment target country.

    Prototype Testing of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines

    With the development of floating offshore wind turbines (FOWT) the traditional approach to conduct prototype testing is no longer sufficient. The current standard for load measurements (IEC-6140-13) does not cover the additional six degrees of freedom which are introduced by the floating motion. To meet these challenges DNV GL has developed a holistic concept for a successful type testing campaign.

    Artificial Intelligence in Renewables – what is it and how can we use it

    In this short presentation, DNV GL will discuss Artificial Intelligence (AI), what it means in general, but in particular the branch of AI called machine learning. Examples of the different machine learning techniques will be given, and some applications to renewables will be used as illustrations. The pros and cons of using machine learning will also be discussed.
