Welcome

The 7th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop will take place on the Faroe Islands from 23 – 24 May 2023.

Why the Faroes?

The Faroe Islands are located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Norway and Iceland, north of Scotland. The archipelago consists of 18 islands with 54,000 inhabitants in total, and it is electrically isolated from other countries. This makes the Faroes a fascinating location for the 2023 Hybrid Power Systems Workshop. Find here an overview on the power system of the Faroe Islands.


 

Presentations & Contributions at the Workshop

The contributions at the Workshop are mainly based on a Call for Papers, supported by invited presentations. The official Call for Papers has started already find out more on the preferred topics of the 7th Hybrid Power Systems Workshop, deadlines and a checklist for the submission of an abstract.

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.
