Title:
A talk for the Midlands OR Society: Will the wind be blowing when we really need it?

Author:
Speaker: Dr Chris Dent

Mini Abstract:
A talk for the Midlands OR Society: Will the wind be blowing when we really need it - quantifying wind generation's contribution to supporting electricity demand? Venue: The Club Room, The Old Joint Stock, 4 Temple Row West, Birmingham, B2 5NY Speaker: Dr. Chris Dent, Durham University Date: Tuesday, 16 April 2013 at 18:30 Whether or not installed generation capacity is adequate to support peak demand is a key question, not just in power systems planning but also in public energy policy. As wind generation will form a key part of our future energy mix in GB and many other power systems, its contribution to adequacy is of great current interest. This presentation will address how wind's contribution is typically quantified, issues of limited historic data and how these may be mitigated, what insights are available from meteorology, and whether the question posed in the title is the right question to be asking anyway.
