42nd ESReDA Seminar
May 15, 2012 – May 16, 2012 all-day
Strathclyde Students Union Jordanhill Campus
76 Southbrae Dr, Glasgow, Glasgow City G13 1PP
42nd ESReDA Seminar on
Risk and Reliability for Wind Energy and other Renewable Sources
15th and 16th May 2012
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK

Scope of the Seminar

The coming decade should see a huge expansion of renewable energy systems, in particular of offshore wind systems. Many risk and reliability related problems for such systems are open and many may still be unarticulated. The ESReDA seminar brings together system operators, manufacturers, insurers, maintainers, government, regulators and university researchers from a variety of relevant disciplines, in order to gain a holistic view of the state of knowledge around wind energy and other renewable systems risk and reliability issues. In addition to considering renewable systems themselves, the scope of the seminar includes the embedding of such systems within the network, and the risk and reliability issues that arise as a consequence.

The seminar will be held at:

University of Strathclyde,
Graham Hills Building
Level 6
40 George Street
G1 1QE

  • Reliability, availability and maintainability of renewable energy systems
  • Network stability risk analysis
  • Investment risk and economic uncertainties for renewable systems

Example application domains

  • Offshore and onshore wind farms
  • Network reliability for nets with large scale renewable systems
  • Other renewable energy generation systems
