Wind energy has been the fastest growing renewable energy globally at an accelerating pace, especially in the Asia regional market. Newly-installed wind capacity added more than 19GW in 2010, mostly in China. In this region, many countries including Thailand, The Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore have redoubled their efforts to embrace renewable energies to counter the growth hampering effects of ever-increasing fossil oil prices. However, many of the opportunities to harness and capture free wind energy had been hampered by the lack of reliable and accurate wind resource assessments in all the South East Asia countries. Such information is critical to enable the community including the authorities and national grid, Independent Power Producer (IPP), renewable energy project developers and owners to mine and realise the tremendous potential investment and development of wind energy opportunities.
In response to this need for wind energy assessment, EnergyCorp Global and SEAS as the main renewable wind energy advocates in Singapore, are jointly organizing a TWO-DAY WIND EXPERT TRAINING in November 2011. The training provides the core state-of-the-art theoretical and practical methods to discover, conceptualise, visualise and realise wind energy opportunities including wind resource assessment in complex terrains, apply analytic for optimal energy output, and also embed sustainability and profitability values for affordable energy.
The training covers the different stages of a wind farm development process: from met mast siting, wind data analysis, wind resource grid generation, micrositing, site suitability analysis to short term wind power forecasting and wind farm management issues.
Upon completion, participants would acquire a working foundation in wind energy assessment and wind farm development. They would also be certified on the wind energy assessment process as well as the use of some of the simulation tools.
An official METEODYN certificate will be awarded to each participant who have successfully completed all the training sessions.
