Energy Revolution Europe

Energy Revolution implies a more flexible grid. New tech to tuckle that challenge has been developed and is continuously under development. The new role of TSOs and DSOs and their relationship with aggregation is focused on. From microgrid experiences to upcoming virtual power plants and from prosumers and aggregators to large scale renewables or conventional generators living together in the same ecosystem Energy Revolution represents a natural link with the existing focus on renewable integration and energy storage. The focus on innovation and flexibility shedding light on the renewable energy sources of the future will play a prominent role in the track.

Effect of Support Policies and Geographic Distribution of Photovoltaic Self-Consumption on Energy Losses

Photovoltaic (PV) self-consumption concept has emerged as a sustainable and economically viable alternative to save electricity provided by electric utilities. This methodology has been applied to three large scale distribution networks in Spain (Murcia, Madrid and Bizkaia). Results show that there is a significant influence of geographic concentration/dispersion of PV self-consumption systems on energy losses.

USEF’s Aggregator Workstream

After releasing the Universal Smart Energy Framework, USEF started an international cross-functional workstream on aggregator implementation models. The publication was based on our analysis of aggregator implementation models for Demand Response for Commercial and Industrial Prosumers, and has received wide acclaim. USEF’s Aggregator Workstream will present final results, highlighting the relevant differences between the Commerce & Industrial Prosumer and the Residential Prosumer. Aspects of this customer segment differ from C&I Prosumers in terms of the amount of flexibility per asset and thus in the number of Prosumers needed to reach minimum flex product sizes. Also, the type of flexibility is mainly load-shift (EV, heat pump) with low marginal costs of activation. And last but not least: the residential market is more regulated. The consequences for effective market entry for aggregators will be the topic for this HUB session.

Connecting the dots: local, national, regional, European

There is only one power system. Splitting between transmission & distribution means reducing value creation and opportunities for the customer. At European level, there is a  dynamic among power networks operators to overcome historical divisions and accelerate the move to the active customer era.

Grid Interconnection Solutions for Optimized Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) Feed-In

Feed-in of renewables to the existing grid is an international challenge. Some of the issues are integration of variable generation, design of storage requirements, planning existing energy generation source, and capacity. Following the optimised grid codes pertaining to the grid topology and the country of installation is also a topic of discussion. This presentation talks about the rise and integration of renewables in Germany and the lessons learned in doing so and how the same methodologies can be adopted by other countries with a brief outlook on the importance of grid codes.

Renewable energy and the impact and possibilities for the e-Mobility infrastructure in Europe

Only renewable energy sources mean green e-Mobility. So the question lies at hand – How to benefit from digitally enhanced renewable energy in such an important applications field, like e-Mobility. The presentation will give an overview about actual challenges and possibilities with Renewable for the e-Mobility infrastructure. Who are the stakeholders and which are the business cases in this new market? What are possible e-Mobility services and how does the system architecture look like. And what is the impact of charging infrastructure on Utilities and energy grid? Expect an Outlook and midterm forecast and a glimpse on E-Mobility Radar.

Enabling the ability to respond to context in real-time, fuelled by a diversity of data

With the ever growing data intensity and data diversity, the Smart Grid requires a rethink of the structure and operational suppleness of its infrastructure and its systems. Instead of collecting data to make long-range plans looking backward. Create a system that is active, dynamic, and secure, with the ability to intelligently react to the distributed resources of micro-grids and two-way power flows using context in real time. We don’t need more data but the right data at the right time.

Generating highly accurate solar installed capacity & location data using satellite imagery

Accurate data on the installed capacity and location of distributed energy is essential for utility companies to operate and innovate in the changing energy landscape. But data that meets ideal requirements for accuracy and granularity is often difficult to accumulate or inaccessible due to the drawbacks in incumbent data collection methods. Sobolt found the answer to the drawbacks in current data collection methods through the technological revolutions in satellite imagery and artificial intelligence. Using high-resolution satellite imagery and a unique imagery analysis framework that combines spectral imaging, machine learning algorithms and statistical methods, Sobolt developed a scalable solution to provide accurate data on the location and capacity of existing solar PV installations.

Success story Case: How to optimize and valorize the energy flexibility in three-steps ?

The increase of renewables during the last few years has changed the energy market landscape and consumer behavior. The supply-demand balance in the electricity grid becomes increasingly challenging to achieve.  It has several consequences on the electricity system and the electricity prices. Higher price volatitlity, transition from centralized approach to a new energy system based on decentralized units combined with the digitalization and increasing data availability creates a real opportunity for market and industrial players. By leveraging the energy flexibility and capturing the value of the available data, N-SIDE helps the market players and industrial sites to consume or produce in a smarter way.

Beyond Bankrupt Bankables

This presentation focuses on the current state of the solar PV industry and how the current value chain exposes the rooftop solar PV segment to unacceptable financial risks. As it becomes more and more clear that terms like “tier 1” and “bankability” are not providing the level of reliability and certainty investors expect and that a brand is only bankable until it is bankrupt where do you go next? The answer is a back to basics approach with a clear focus on accountability and energy production. My presentation will detail how the PV industry and value chain need to change in order to meet the demand of the residential and commercial rooftop segment and offer the financial security they deserve.
