The next-generation energy grid will be characterized by a high penetration of renewable energy resources, distributed generation, energy storage, and a drive to control cost and Carbon emissions. The next wave of smart grid technology deployment will focus on advanced Big Data analytics, grid management, and distribution network innovations that integrate and facilitate clean energy, efficiency, and proactive customer engagement. Utilities around the world are looking at integrating more distributed solar, wind, biomass, and other renewable sources into the energy mix, leveraging smart grid and microgrid investments to deliver advanced services and improved network performance.
The Renewable Distributed Generation Forum,
April 13-14, 2016 in Lausanne, Switzerland, will examine the latest technology advances and business models for increasing the penetration of renewable energy while optimizing the ROI for stakeholders across the energy ecosystem. The emphasis is on real-world case studies and lessons learned to date, and addresses such topics as:
- Grid-scale and distributed energy storage
- Market opportunities, growth projections, and change drivers
- Predictive analytics and Big Data utilization for advanced operations
- Grid-connected and off-grid microgrid systems
- Managing impact of renewables on transmission and distribution system
- Interfaces and integration into existing systems
- Power control strategies and monitoring
- Next-gen smart grid technologies and network architectures
- Advanced technologies for enabling greater PV integration
- New-generation distributed energy resources inverters
- Transactive energy and Virtual Power Plant scenarios
- Advanced grid modeling, forecasting and design tools
- Meeting aggressive mandates for renewables implementation
- Standards issues and integration challenges
- And more
Prepare for New RE Goals.
EU countries have agreed on a new renewable energy target of at least 27% of final energy consumption in the EU as a whole by 2030. To achieve this, utilities will need to leverage advanced smart grid technologies and carefully re-examine their overall business models. The Renewable Energy Forum is an ideal venue in which to discuss these issues with executive colleagues facing the same challenges.
