First four speakers for Wind Finland 2019 have been confirmed. Theme for the day is new ground for wind power and so we hear speeches about grids, Scandinavian wind conditions, price of the profile risks and different scenarios for growth of wind power.
Confirmed speakers are:
Doctor of Technology Jukka Ruusunen has been Managing Director of Fingrid Oyj since 2007. Preceding his time at Fingrid, Ruusunen served as the Development Director at Fortum for 10 years. Prior to this, he worked at University of Technology and Helsinki School of Economics for 15 years during his early career. Ruusunen will tell us about grids as the core of energy system.
Dr. Irene Suomi is a research scientist at the Finnish Meteorological Institute. Her main fields of expertise are atmospheric turbulence and wind, with special focus on short-duration wind speed maxima, called wind gusts. She earned her PhD from the University of Helsinki in 2017, after which she was internationally acknowledged by an invitation to become a convener of a wind gust session in the Annual Meetings of the European Meteorological Society (EMS). During the past years, she has been actively working in research projects related to wind and turbulence in cold climates, including also Arctic and Antarctic meteorology. Currently, she is also the president of the Geophysical Society of Finland, and the delegate of the Finnish national committee of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). Suomi will lead us to the winds of north – is it always windy somewhere?
