Wind integration Challenges and solutions

Next Friday 27th November from 10 to 13:30h, at LS-5 room of the ETSEIB-UPC a workshop entitled “Wind integration Challenges and solutions”, that will take place. The programme includes the participation of Dr Hannele From VTT research center in Finland, CITCEA-UPC and IREC researchers. Dr Hannele Holttinen, operator agent of IEA wind task 25, has worked for VTT for more than 20 years in different fields of wind energy research, with main interest on the impact of wind and PV on power systems and electricity markets.  This seminar is related to the EU FP7 IRPWind project where IREC and VTT participates

From Biomass to fuels

Next December 11th, a seminar on energy production from waste materials and wood will be held at IREC premises. The revalorization of wastes is one of the main issues for the society. The aim of the workshop is to provide an overview of research carried out in Catalonia in this field trying to cover the maximum range of raw materials: sewage sludge, manure, waste material and wood. From there different energy products can be prepared: biogas and its treatment, methane, biodiesel. The inaugural lecture will be presented, by ICAEN, the strategy of the Government of Catalonia to promote the use of biomass energy. The workshop was organized by XaRMAE, IREC and with the collaboration of the reference network in Biotechnology (XRB).

For more information and registration you can download the brochure: workshop biomass.
