Power for the Resume


In June WEICan’s wind integration researcher, David Watson, will wrap up his work at the North Cape research facility and start new work in renewable energy integration in New Zealand.

“The experience I’ve gained here will be very important in my career,” he said.

“This has been a nice three years of experience into wind energy, into integration, into how to use storage to allow intermittent renewable to be compatible with the electricity network,” he said.

During his work on commissioning and operating the Wind Energy of Canada’s battery storage system Watson has published one research paper on the integrated system and has other papers in the final stages of development.

“In one sense, research is never complete. With everything you learn, you always come up with a new idea to study, a new project, a new scenario to operate the battery in,” Watson acknowledged. “That’s what’s so exciting about research.”
