Why You Should Attend

11th Edition European Electricity Flexibility and Ancillary Forum

Across the European electricity grid, ancillary and balancing needs are increasing due to the continued impact of renewable energy and its intermittency. Factors that are being affected include flexibility in the power grid, inertia that is now decreasing in the system due to renewable energy sources being asynchronous, and storage that is now a major issue as it is seen as the missing link between renewable resources and a near perfect energy system. The energy industry is now moving incredibly fast in events that affect these factors, factors which are critical to the success of power system operators and the end-users that they serve. This marcus evans conference plays a crucial part in a strategy that involves keeping ahead and gaining the decision-making edge for system operators, power distribution companies and ancillary services in the energy industry.
