In addition to managing wind farms, energy consult specialises in the electrical connection of wind farms. Political and legal framework conditions on the wind energy market, technical capabilities and investment concepts are constantly changing and, due to their complexity, require specialised industry knowledge and know-how when it comes to grid connection planning.
My goal is to analyse the future needs of the market, to sustainably improve daily business and to generate added value for our customers.
A large number of regulations and requirements must be complied with when planning the grid connection of a wind farm through the regulations of the EEG 2014, the SDL Regulation, the BDEW Medium-Voltage Directive and the Transmission Code. Thanks to our many years of experience in the wind energy industry and our participation in the relevant committees, we learn as early as possible about future-oriented innovations in legislation, investment opportunities and technology.
COMPREHENSIVE SERVICE PACKAGE BASED ON PRECISE ALTERNATIVE TESTING
We will be more than happy to support you in all questions relating to planning grid connections and can take over the complete planning of the internal wind farm cabling and connection to the public grid – both at medium voltage and at high voltage level. We always work in close coordination with everyone involved.
We always develop and test several concepts for planning grid connections in order to implement the optimum solution for you and ensure that the connection is not only technically reliable but also cost-effective. Our extensive range of services starts with the concept development for the network infrastructure and ends with connection at commissioning, so that all electronic tasks are covered up to the running operation.
So that grid connection planning is successful, we develop communication and regulation concepts for you, organise the collection of data, take over documentation and document management, plan transfer stations and, if necessary, substations, coordinate all those involved, draw up specifications for complete infrastructure plants, carry out the awarding of contracts and, if necessary, supervise construction. Lastly, we support you during commissioning and SDL certification.
CONFORMITY PREPARATION FOR COMPLETING GRID CONNECTION PLANNING
As a prerequisite for receiving the statutory feed-in remuneration, every project requires a certificate of conformity. This ensures that the information in the turbine certificate, which is created exclusively in the planning phase, corresponds to the actual settings of the finished wind farm and the grid connection point. After detailed review of all documents and an on-site inspection, energy consult prepares the declaration of conformity and thus ensures EEG remuneration of your generated electricity.
