The Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) invites HOMER users to attend its one-day business conference in Washington, DC on February 28th. Wind turbines have been an important component of hybrid power systems for decades and new technology has recently lowered costs appreciably (up to 60%). Wind and solar often have complimentary operating characteristics – daily, seasonal and storm-related. Combining wind and solar can lower storage requirements, increase renewables supply fraction (penetration), reduce back-up fuel consumption and lower costs of energy. The US-DOE and the DOE national labs recently have launched a number of new initiatives aimed at increasing the use of wind in hybrid systems and microgrids.
DWEA’s Distributed Wind 2019 business conference is a once-a-year opportunity to learn what’s new in “behind-the-meter” and off-grid wind and meet the leading researchers and suppliers. DWEA is offering HOMER subscribers its lowest registration “speaker” rate of $150 and access to its discounted hotel rates. See information, including a link to the latest agenda, here.
The 8th annual DWEA Distributed Wind Business Conference will take place in Washington DC on February 28th, 2019. HOMER Energy CEO, Dr. Peter Lilienthal, will be attending and speaking at this event. We hope to see you there. Register today.
