Why You Should Attend

10th Edition European Electricity Ancillary and Balancing Forum

Every sector is having to adapt to the technology of the future and the electricity sector is no exception, with numerous technological solutions being introduced into the sector, from storage solutions to assist with balancing to the futuristic solutions of virtual power plants and smart grids, as well as the ongoing challenge of increasing the energy that is produced by renewables in order to reduce the production of greenhouse gas emissions. A greater proportion of RES presents a new problem for those responsible for balancing and ancillary services: renewables are difficult to be relied upon as the amount of wind and sun, for example, varies. A lack of a constant supply of power thus results in additional balancing challenges, of which storage solutions have the potential to be a remedy for this.

This marcus evans event will enable TSOs, DSOs  and regulators to discuss the practical challenges involved in implementing the new regulatory developments including the network code and balancing guidelines, and how cooperation between firms can help with this. This event will also look at recent developments in demand response and flexibility as well as grid storage solutions, and how renewable energy systems can be used efficiently to deal with the ever-present issue of their lack of reliability. By discussing the key issues of today and preparing for the future, individual firms, as well as the industry as a whole, will be able to proceed in the knowledge that everyone is moving forward together.
