Thank you for sending this out to the list serve, I was going to get to it
by the end of the day.
For people who did not get the original email from me inviting them to the
workshop, this simply means that we did not have your proper email or you
were not on the attendee lists from previous wind/diesel workshops.
I will continue to post updates to the wind-diesel list serve, but if you
are specifically interested in receiving more information about the workshop
and logistics, please provide myself and Lisa Decker (lisa_decker@...
with your contact information (off the list serve please) and we will add
you to the conference mailing list.
As a side note, it looks like to dates are already wrong in this email, the
true dates should be the September 23, 24 and 25. In addition, TDX
corporation has offered to provide tours of the high penetration wind diesel
system at St. Paul in addition to the possible tour of the power system in
Kotzebue. We are still working on the logistics and will provide more as we
work them out.
Thanks again and we hope to see you all in Anchorage..

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
In addition, if you are not interested in receiving more information about
the workshop, please reply to this email and we will remove your name from
this list. On the same note, if you know of someone who would be interested
in attending but who may not have gotten this email, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you in Anchorage....
