Since the last Wind Diesel Workshop in September of 2000, our industry has
seen a great deal of change. In years past, meetings have been driven by
researchers studding the technology, talking about how we could do it. The
tides are turning, however; we can now talk about how it has been working.
From Northern Alaska to Southern Chile, from high penetration wind-diesel
plants to large-scale wind-diesel-hydro systems, the blades are turning.
This is a very exciting time for our industry, a time where the research
into systems continues but also where researchers can sit back and listen to
the operators talk about how their systems are working. Not only test-bed
systems connected to research stations, but commercially driven
applications, operated by people with the title of Plant Manager, not
Come join us in Anchorage, Alaska on September 24th and 25th for a
discussion about wind-diesel technology; covering current ongoing research
and plant operating experience. Tours of an operating wind diesel system,
likely Kotzebue Alaska, will be conducted on September 26th.
We are still working on the logistics but will be providing more information
to you shortly.
We are also currently working on the agenda, if you are interested in making
a presentation, please forward a short description to Ian Baring-Gould
