All around the world power grids and energy systems depends more and more on wind generated energy. In this plenary the focus will be on investigating future potential business and technology trends in the wind industry. The main trend is for larger and larger turbine especially offshore, but is the smartest way of improving the business cases of new wind energy projects? Secondly, the question is how this increased level wind energy is integrated into the energy systems in the optimal way, and which derived requirements on the power grids and energy systems will this result in. These changes in the power grids and energy systems will as well potentially impact the way controllers are designed for wind turbines and how they are certified.
