Webinar Series – Part 2:
Mega Solar Projects: Challenges of Grid Integration

Designing and realizing mega-projects like Benban Solar Park, a 1.65 GWp project in Egypt, brings along its own challenges. What solutions do exist for problems such as end of line issues, and how is it possible to ensure a stable operation for the years to come?
As project partners, Voltalia and Reuniwatt have the chance to teach you about their approach to securely operate one of the largest solar plants on the planet.
Voltalia will discuss the history of Benban’s commissioning and its particularities related to the project’s enormous size, while Reuniwatt will present you specifically with the aspect of weather and production forecasting of mega-plants.

We are looking forward to present to you first-hand experience from Benban Solar Park in Egypt. Our moderator will make sure that all your questions get answered!

After the Webinar you’ll have an understanding of:

  • The essential points to be addressed in order to integrate a mega project into the grid (requirements of the grid operator, compliance list, technical specifications)
  • The limitations applied by the grid operator to allow the production of the solar complex to be regulated (specifications in the grid code and connection points)
  • How climatic challenges to be overcome in desert areas
  • How forecasting helps maintain the supply-demand balance

Mega Solar Projects: Challenges of Grid Integration

Topics discussed:
Challenges for Grid Integration: Benban’s experience in Egypt
Production Forecasting for Solar Megaparks

Language: English

Webinar Series – Part 3:
Dispatchable PV+Storage Plants using MESA-ESS and precision forecasts based on sky cams

California’s Springbok Solar Cluster is the use case for the dispatchable solar concept par excellence. 8 Minute strives to be on the front edge of future technology, and is a pioneer in renewable grid supporting services and dispatchable solar. We take a deep dive into California’s Springbok Solar Cluster, which will produce in average about 10% of the power needed to power the city of Los Angeles. All-sky imagers are a key enabler for the dispatchable solar concept and necessary to improve energy integration. Solar and energy storage projects for public and private utilities benefit from irradiance and production forecasts as a means for securely deploying renewable energy and offering a solution to the intermittency problem that solar power faces.
This webinar allows you to aquire best-in-class knowledge on managing largescale dispatchable solar plant operations, and learn about a variety of grid ancillary services like frequency regulation and power smoothing to the grid that can be enabled through short-term forecasting.

Learn about this trending solar concept and join our discussion!

After the Webinar you’ll have an understanding of:

  • A pioneer mega-scale project with unique features
  • An innovative sky imager and a tracking system
  • Why dispatchable solar paired with solar forecasting and energy storage will be the backbone of the 21st-Century grid
  • How solar short-term forecasts can be used for active power smoothing
  • How an advanced control solution coupled with high-accuracy forecasts will allow you to achieve multiple control modes

Webinar Series Part 4:
Off-grid Solar: Remote mega-plants for C&I applications

Remote C&I projects help these businesses make their operations more sustainable. Resource Extraction has been relying on fossil fuels for decades, and is now turning towards add-on solar and sotrage solutions. The 36MWp Fekola Solar Project will be one of the largest off-grid solar-battery-hybrid systems in the world. Together with Suntrace, we will share our experience from this outstanding project.

More details on this and other upcoming webinars will be announced shortly.
