Wind Power Conference Connects International Experts on Remote and Islanded Grid Systems

2015_AK_WD_-LOGO_final_ImageExperts from across the globe, including Russia, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Alaska and across the United States convened March 4-6, 2015 in Anchorage, Alaska for a 2.5 day conference focused on the development and maximization of remote and islanded grid wind power systems.

The conference was an opportunity for technical experts from national labs and universities from around the country to meet with wind farm operators from Alaska and others to discuss ways to optimize and improve these remote systems. Sessions covered technical topics such as energy storage and control systems for integrating wind power into electircal grids; the human capacity needs for operating and maintaining systems in remote areas; and the diesel side of the equation in maximizing performance.

The conference was hosted by the Islanded Grid Resource Center (IGRC), which was created by the Renewable Energy Alaska Project (REAP) in Alaska and the Island Institute in Maine to act as a knowledge center to connect those using and working on remote grids throughout the United States and beyond. The IGRC is funded through a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s WINDExchange Program.

Presentations from the conference, and video, are available on the IGRC website.
