Welcome to Madeira!

We welcome you to the 5th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop which was scheduled to take place in Madeira, Portugal from 19 – 20 May 2020.

Due to the spreading of the coronavirus and the official restrictions for public life,  the workshop will be postponed until next year. The new workshop date is now 9 – 10 March 2021.

The registration for this workshop is currently suspended and will be resumed at a later date. We will keep you posted. Sign up for our regular workshop updates here.

The main objective of the 5th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop is to discuss the challenges that arise with the integration of high shares of renewables (wind, solar, hydro) into isolated/island power systems/micro-grids in combination with batteries/flywheels and conventional power generators. Finding viable combinations of conventional and renewable energy is one key solution for the efficient and sustainable running of these types of power systems. International experts will convene for the 5th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop to share their project experiences and to detect areas in need of improvement.

As an island grid with a large share of renewable energy, Madeira is perfectly suited to grant a unique insight into the operation of an isolated power system, which makes Madeira the ideal host for the 5th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop.

 

Focus of the Workshop

The 5th 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.
