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: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
