This 4-hour workshop aims to show that a comprehensive and realistic management of the variabilities and uncertainties associated with wind energy production estimates allows developers and investors to reduce risks and / or make decisions according to the needs of each transaction. We will review the uncertainties that are usually found in these projects and we will explain them in depth with common examples, deepening in the concepts of uncertainties and variabilities. We will interpret the levels of typical uncertainties with the objective of evaluating specific projects and we will relate it to different types of transactions according to the risks that are usually associated with each one of them.
This workshop is aimed at developers who wish to obtain the maximum value of their projects as well as investors who wish to interpret and make the most of the information available in their decisions.
Circe Triviño, has 15 years’ experience in wind energy. Circe has a degree in Physics (meteorology), complemented with a diploma on advances studies in fluid mechanics. She started her wind energy carrier working for Gamesa on site conditions assessment. She joint legacy Garrad Hassan in 2004 and has been focused in wind resource studies since then. She is responsible of the Project Development Section in DNV Iberia and Latin-American, providing energy assessments and other related wind analysis to a wide range of customers. Has been involved in most relevant projects in Mexico, Latin-American and Iberia during the financing phase advising the banks and investors about potential risks associated to the project from the resource point of view. She is also an active member of the Global Energy practice, collaborating and impacting on the global methodologies adapted by DNV as well as committed with the innovation processes in the company.
Jonás Rodríguez is the Business Development Manager for DNV in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
