Offshore Cable & Grid Integration Forum

Strengthening Offshore Links and Capacity for Large-Scale Wind Integration

25-26 February 2013
Steigenberger Hotel, Berlin, Germany


Why You Should Attend

Offshore Cable & Grid Integration Forum

With more large-scale offshore wind farms established, a supergrid is clearly the way forward. Scaling up on the existing offshore cables, TSOs are dedicating efforts to expand into a radial connection to bridge a cluster of wind farms. While all the offshore wind farm projects are taking off at full speed, TSOs must catch up to establish both offshore and strengthen the onshore links to align with these developments.

 

This marcus evans forum delve into the offshore DC technology innovations and update delegates with regulatory framework, which are seen as the biggest challenges for an offshore DC grid realisation. It will be the perfect opportunity for delegates to benchmark and learn from others’ experience in pilot projects to minimise risks of project delays.
