Planning of wind farms: On the lee or sunny side?

10.02.2011
Foundations and praxis of wind farm planning and project due diligence at Haus der Technik

Already in the planning phase of wind farms essential parameters of success - or failure, in most cases based on 20 years of operational life, are laid. Many technical and financial risks are well hidden and first make themselves felt negatively in the long run. Yet they are included in the planning at this early stage.

Successful project development of wind farms take into consideration not only technical planning and legal criteria, but also deal in detail with the efficiency and project due diligence from the viewpoints of the operators, investors and project backers.

The objective of the two-day seminar “Wind Farm Planning and Project Due Diligence” is to enable the participants to recognise the risks, then to evaluate and minimise those risks if not completely eliminate them.

Under the direction of Dr. Ingo Ewald of “D.I.E. – Erneuerbare Energien” (D.I.E. - Renewable Energies) in Mainz, the seminar participants will be introduced to the basic principles and praxis of the development of wind farm projects from site assessment and scrutiny of the requisite permits and contracts to evaluation of wind resources and infrastructures, and the consideration of legal and technical framework.

The seminar “Wind Farm Planning and Project Due Diligence” will be held on 24 - 25 March 2011 at Haus der Technik in Essen and is aimed at project developers, bank staff-members and investors, WT-manufacturers and licensing authorities.

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...

Im Focus: Optoelectronic Inline Measurement – Accurate to the Nanometer

Germany counts high-precision manufacturing processes among its advantages as a location. It’s not just the aerospace and automotive industries that require almost waste-free, high-precision manufacturing to provide an efficient way of testing the shape and orientation tolerances of products. Since current inline measurement technology not yet provides the required accuracy, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is collaborating with four renowned industry partners in the INSPIRE project to develop inline sensors with a new accuracy class. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project is scheduled to run until the end of 2019.
