    Uruguay plans to install 1 GW of wind power until 2015, which will lead to a share of wind energy of 20%. The objective of the NAMA is to support such a high percentage of wind energy in the national electricity grid, by analysing the expansion of the electric system, considering shares of wind energy of 20%, 25% and 30%.

    Activities Uruguay wants to conduct are:

    • Review successful experiences in other countries with high integration of wind power, besides other aspects the operational planning methodologies
    • Analise existing regulations in Uruguay and identification of rules to be developed
    • Develop appropriate grid codes
    • Stakeholder trainings for tools supporting network studies and wind farms modeling
    • Studies in all related areas, e.g. capacity analysis of the electric system to meet fluctuations in wind generation and demand peaks, and analysis of results
    • Capacity building on operation and dispatch, including visits to control and dispatch centres of systems with high integration of wind energy
