Smart Grids: Digitisation and Energy Storage, Technological Challenges and Business Opportunities Conference
October 18 - October 19
In 2015, Orkestra and Tecnalia jointly organised a conference under the heading “Smart Grids: Technology, Competitiveness, Regulation and New Business Models”. The event, with 150 attendees, addressed three major themes: power distribution, strategic aspects and the regulatory environment; transnational electricity interconnections and the integration of offshore wind; and advanced distribution networks, information management and integration of distributed resources.
The joint proposal for 2017 will combine the work of the two organisations, allowing technological aspects to be discussed alongside associated economic, regulatory and business-model issues. This is an important step, given that regulation is a key aspect for the development of new technologies.
EASE will be participate in the panel on “Energy storage. Implications for power grids” .
