About Forum

The economic pressure on wind energy continues with many countries moving away from FiT to Auction schemes. The support scheme present in Poland – green certificates system was not managed properly by the regulator, which caused the dramatic price drop from PLN 300/MWh to ca. 50 PL/MWh currently (with episodes of price below<25 PLN/MWh).

Financial stress creates incentive to investigate the Operation and Management category of exiting wind farm. Increasing production and availability, proper management of revenues and risks associated with trading energy and green certificates, decrease of various operating expenditures are everyday topics for most of operators and suppliers.

Given the success of the 1st edition of WFOF held in March 2017 where more than 120 participants attended representing over 60% of wind capacity in Poland, the founders of WFOF Adam Jaworski and Mariusz Milewski decided to run the 2nd edition in 2018.

In 2018 it was decided to join forces with PWEA in order to bring in more attention to the market and make WFOF the leading wind energy event in CEE devoted to O&M.

We hope that you will be interested in the topics we are preparing for 2nd WFOF and we see you in Gdańsk this March.

Programme

This year we intend to discuss following topics:

  • Collaboration among wind farm operators

  • Big data and impact on the O&M

  • EU grid code challenges

  • O&M service strategies

  • Retrofits and new services offered by OEM for operating assets

  • Management and Optimisation of Wind Farm Energy Sales & Risks

  • And during Miniacademies: blades, foundations, insurance

Detailed Agenda will be published 7.02.2018

Minifair

This year we decided to open up the Forum to all kind of smaller contractors and suppliers present on the wind market in Poland and not only. We decided to organise a mini-fair with targeted 40 companies being the back bone of daily O&M services. We hope this will be a great idea to create new business connections and expert knowledge sharing channel. We will keep the section updated with new exhibitors joining mini-fair.

If you would like to join Forum as exhibitor contact us directly: info@wfof.eu
