Webinar: The need to model coupled energy networks to transition to a decarbonized future

The coordination between planners and operators of coupled energy systems will allow the further integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity network by storing energy in fuel form over long periods of time using power-to-gas, the recovery and more efficient use of heat, and the decarbonization of industrial processes and transportation modes that can’t be electrified. Energy networks, such as electricity grids and natural gas pipeline networks, have traditionally been planned and operated independently. In order to enhance the integration and coordination of different energy networks, they must be planned and operated in coupled ways. Different energy networks have historically been and are still modelled by different tools.

Policy Messages on Upscaling of Smart Grid Research and Innovation

As part of the umbrella initiative “Public Support to Smart Grid Research and Innovation” (2017-2019), an interdisciplinary group of stakeholders from nine countries (Austria, Belgium, Germany, India, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Sweden) have jointly explored and shared knowledge on different types of barriers to upscaling of smart grid research and innovation. The project, developed within the ISGAN Knowledge Transfer Platform, focused on the role of public sector institutions, in particular funding agencies, and on identifying solutions to overcome identified challenges. The results of the project have been summarized into “Policy Messages on Upscaling of Smart Grid solutions” for decision makers, especially relevant for stakeholders involved in developing policy and strategies related to public funding of smart grid research and innovation. These policy messages were produced in an interactive workshop on 30th of September 2019 in Montreux, Switzerland, in conjunction with the ISGAN ExCo18 Meeting.

Webinar: CoordiNet- Large scale demonstrations for TSO-DSO Cooperation

The webinar presents the CoordiNet project which aims at demonstrating how Distribution System Operators (DSO) and Transmission System Operators (TSO) shall act in a coordinated manner to procure and activate grid services in the most reliable and efficient way through the implementation of three large-scale demonstrations.

Webinar: Outcomes of the KTP on Regulatory Sandboxes

The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) provides a strategic platform to support high-level government attention and action for the accelerated development and deployment of smarter, cleaner electricity grids globally. Experimental Sandboxes for Smart Grid Transitions has been the focus for a major ISGAN Inter-Annex knowledge exchange initiative in partnership with the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER), involving more than 20 countries, with the purpose of identifying key lessons learned and examples of good practice in regard to the design and implementation of such innovative policy instruments. This webinar will disseminate and discuss the outcomes of this project.
