Welcome to the Hybrid Power Systems Workshop

We welcome you to the 7th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop which will take place at the Faroe Islands from 23 – 24 May 2023.


Focus of the Workshop

One challenge of island grids and micro-grids is to maintain the balance between production and consumption. Diesel generators are still frequently used for this task. Due to the unavoidable dependence on fuel price and delivery options, and the environmental impact, alternatives are being sought. Wind and solar power are independent of imported fuels and environmentally friendly, and therefore the logical choice for island and micro-grids. However, these renewable energies are dependent on variable resource availability; hence their maximum production capacity is subject to natural fluctuations. It is therefore important to develop strategies for how to align production and consumption in the best possible way and to find the perfect combination of conventional and renewable energy.

The 7th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop offers a prime opportunity to discuss the future of hybrid power systems. Participants will look at applications in a variety of locations and operating environments with a focus on system design, operating experience, business models, economics, and implementation issues.

The contributions at the Workshop are mainly based on a Call for Papers, supported by invited presentations. The official Call for Papers starts end of September 2022!
