Optimisation Flexibility Interoperability Resilience

Key Topics:

  • Optimisation: Projects with the right application and new technology that ensure the energy provided to the end consumer is of a high level, free from interferences. Are these projects and pilots the solutions the Grid needs? 
  • Flexibility: Updates on utilities’ innovative approaches regarding the flexibility of the aging Grid and the integration of renewables. Will they get the Grid a step further with updates and integration of renewables? 
  • Resilience: Reliability in times of drought, especially in the developing countries. Heat and drought are on top of minds especially in South Europe  and with Climate Change. How does the Grid cope with the changes and how safe can it be? 
  • Interoperability: Projects that focus on interoperability and the information / services provided and received by and for consumers / utilities. Will they need the less possible actual engagement from the part of the consumer?
