The Parker Project – Grid Integrated Electric Vehicles

In the Parker project, The technical University and Its partners cooperate with vehicle and charging spot manufactures to ensure that contemporary electric vehicles can contribute to a stable and economical power system based on renewable energy. The OEM partners include car brands Nissan, Peugeot, Citroën and Mitsubishi. The presentation will describe the project and provide a status on how system services are currently demonstrated using series-produced electric vehicles supporting vehicle-to-grid (V2G).

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.

How to Move From a Highly Centralized System to a More Decentralized One?

France has had a highly centralized electrical system for decades. Following the recent law on self-consumption, how does France prepare itself to evolve towards a more decentralized system? This presentation will deal with the question of how to address the challenges due to the move from a centralized towards a more decentralized system.

Decentralized Governance of Energy Systems: Opportunities and Challenges

The transition towards a more decarbonized energy system has led to contentious debate, not only concerning the mix of energy sources to be drawn upon in the future, but also about the configuration of the system itself, with increasing advocacy for a smaller scale, decentralized energy system. My talk will present the economic arguments in favor and against decentralization of governance of energy systems and will show how the concept of “polycentric governance system” can bring novel perspectives into this debate.

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.

    Beyond Pilot Tests: the Next Step in ESS Aggregation

    Until now, no one seems to have been able to scale a business model for the aggregation of distributed energy sources that can benefit both prosumers and the electricity system. Elemize Technologies, a young Italian startup, is trying to do so, with a system that connects prosumers with electricity markets. The presentation will give the point of view of a startup operating in this sector, while also showing how energy market rules significantly affect the scalability of ESS aggregation.

    Lessons from Pay TV: Survival in a Pool of Sharks

    Many challenges in the Smart Grid world are challenges that companies in the Digital Television world have faced in the past 30 years. Security companies in the DTV landscape have learned on the job to fight against organized crime. They have learned how to maintain complex systems with different network topologies and many different types of devices, and how to securely manage those devices. Our Smart Grid does not have 30 years of time to learn on the job. We need to learn from mistakes and experiences made. In this presentation, we give an overview of the main challenges and how these can be addressed this though key management design and device lifecycle security, and we link them to current issues in Smart Grid security.

    Learnings from the implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS)

    The protection of a power system has different priorities compared to traditional IT environments. In IT, the highest priority is always on confidentiality. In operational technologies, availability is more relevant. A system must be available and system operation must be able to protect systems and humans from harm at any cost. With the merging of operational technology and information technology, power systems are facing increased risks from known and new threats.
