8 The objective of the Renewable Energy Community of Practise (RECP) is to support GEOSS outcomes related to the application of Earth Observation data for renewable energies Relevant areas are: Siting of power plants and facilities including environmental and sociological issues Optimized design of power systems and facilities Yield estimation and resource monitoring based on historic information Yield forecast based on near real time weather and forecasting Integration into existing energy supply, e.g. grid & utility system integration Operation and management of power plants incl. automatic failure detection Trading and monitoring of power and environmental credits Environmental monitoring of impacts Life cycle considerations Economic analyses

9 The Renewable Energy CP will look for members from: end users of EO based information services national and international industry associations value adders which provide (partly EO based) information services to end users national and international energy organisations/programme research and development in universities, research centers and industries

10 Plan of activities Create working groups on the different renewable energies, identify members and communities, ensure a broad representation Identify existing and anticipated user requirements for the different renewable energies. Identify the present status and gaps in meeting the above requirements, particularly for Earth Observation data, information and systems. Make recommendations how to fulfil requirements and to close gaps. Identify and describe relevant projects including pilot or demonstration projects. Identify synergies between the different renewable energy communities. Document requirements and recommendations Conduct user workshops and user surveys Disseminate GEOSS potential and best practice examples Provide information on standardisation (metadata, protocols, databases,..) Recommendation on incubation projects

15 Objectives – Wind Energy CP Support GEOSS outcomes related to application of EO data toward valuable wind energy results: –Siting –Forecasting –Integration –Operations Wind energy community: users of the energy, weather & climate components of the GEOSS effort

16 Societal Benefit Why Wind Energy Now? Wind is fastest growing source of energy in the world today Huge potential in both developed and developing countries Dramatic benefit in improved siting, energy varies with cube of wind speed Improved forecasting crucial to utility integration and operations

17 Justification Improved wind energy understanding requires disparate information that go beyond existing collaborative activities: –Weather data archives for site modeling –Weather forecasting in all timeframes –Boundary layer meteorology –Climate analysis and long-term variability –Extreme event analysis and temporal change –GIS, land use data, surface roughness data

18 Offshore Wind Energy EO-based wave statistics to support design of vessels for operations & maintenance Courtesy ARGOS (NL) & BMT (UK) What is the availability of wind farms? Can I send a vessel to repair? Why kind of vessels? Should I invest in maintenance or more turbines? Scatterometer Coarse Resolution (O(25)km) Good temporal frequency Long-term archive BUT does not work close to coast where wind farms are built Synthetic Aperture Radar High Resolution (O(150)m) BUT Low temporal revisit Archive (mainly ERS, ENVISAT, RADARSAT) Need to combine EO sources, but better used to get the spatial variability rather than magnitude Active remote sensing for resource assessment

19 Onshore Wind Energy EO-based roughness & Digital Elevation Model for wind modeling Contributing to Enhanced Wind Energy Modeling Results Courtesy ARMINES (FR)Courtesy WindLogics (USA)

20 Raw EO data Information & ServicesEnd-User Application Backscatter from Synthetic Aperture Radar Wind rose retrieved through numerical model of boundary layer Integration with ancillary data Sources into user analysis Adding to the Value Chain Aim to make the end-to-end EO value chain more effective by: Delivering information services Organising the supply (e.g. developing infrastructure) Federating the demand (e.g. user-pull, not technology pushed) E.g. integrate geoinformation into third party software and services used as standards in the wind industry

21 Wind Life Cycle / Data Needs Courtesy Armines (Fr) Spans all time horizons: Hindcast - archives Nowcast - monitoring Forecast - modelling Data Requirements depend on the phase

22 Wind energy can be the model for a broader Renewable Energy Community for GEOSS Innovation Algorithms Feedback Applications ServicesScience

23 Next Steps for RECP Series of small workshops (regional?) Questionnaire, all RECP components Develop an on-line registry Specific questions for major planning workshop –What are the key questions –What is the existing technical capacity –What are the existing and required operational and technical support facilities –What do the users need in 5 and 10 years –What are the key metrics and milestones that we can address –What is the degree of precision and accuracy required for operational activities –Relationship of RECP to larger group here, and globally (IGOS?)
