This talk presented a brief analysis of low-wind-power events in Ireland. Renewable energy is continuing to grow in Ireland. Energy systems are transitioning away from traditional fossil fuels and relying more on the intermittent energy from renewable sources. In Ireland this is mainly in the form of wind energy. With the growing share of wind power in the energy system, low-wind-power events are receiving more attention. These events are especially challenging when electricity demand is high, for example during winter. It’s important to quantify the duration and frequency of low-power-events, so that we can better manage electricity supply in a future with more wind energy.
