The Smart Grid Discourse Arena: A global social network analysis
For shaping and adapting policy agendas and institutional change towards Smart Grids, it is of utmost importance to understand how discourses develop in the fast-changing reality of energy transition. This policy brief provides evidence about the smart grid related topics, which create most attention by actor groups and the public. The analysis is based on systematically observed global communication at the online social media platform, Twitter with with a dataset of more than 70 thousand messages between December 2015 and April 2018, which all include the hashtag #smartgrid and/or #smartgrids.
Flexibility In Future Power Systems
Power system flexibility: the ability to manage change
Executive Summary of KTP on Public Support to Smart Grid RD&I
The 4th Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) on Public Support to Smart Grid RD&I took place during 18-19 October 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The KTP was primarily caters to government funding agencies working daily on the design and implementation of funding programs to support Smart Grid development at national or regional levels.
ISGAN emphasizes the importance of strong, reliable, resilient, flexible, and affordable power grids, supported by the digitalization of the electricity system for achievement of goals on the “grid edge” (e.g., integration of EVs, RE, energy storage, and demand side management)
17th ISGAN Executive Committee Meeting (ExCo17)
The 17th ISGAN Executive Committee Meeting (ExCo17) and associated side events have been held in Sweden in the week from 1st – 5th April 2019. A big thank you goes to the Swedish Energy Agency, the host of ExCo17.
Knowledge Exchange on Experimental Sandboxes to Enable Smart Grid Deployment
During the Stockholm Smart Grid Week first week in April 2019, a knowledge exchange event on experimental (regulatory) sandboxes to enable smart grid deployment was arranged by the International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) in partnership with International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER). Local organizers included the Swedish Smart Grid Forum and Swedish Energy Agency.
GSGF (Global Smart Grid Federation) met ISGAN members
„During the ExCo-Meeting in Sweden, GSGF (Global Smart Grid Federation) and ISGAN members met in order to strengthen future collaboration, in particular in Asia-Pacific. Aiming at membership expansion, joint activities like knowledge sharing workshops and Smart Grids events have been identified. The next common event will be the Award Ceremony as part of the CEM10 Mission Innovation - ISGAN side event taking place in Vancouver on May, 29.”
ISGAN is the short name for International Smart Grid Action Network in the framework of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Technology Collaboration Program. It is the only global, government-to-government forum on Smart Grids.
The future of electricity markets in a low carbon economy
The event will focus on international experiences and lessons learned, with emphasis on the importance of market design in relation to the following key aspects of power systems transformation and smart grid development;
ISGAN Knowledge Exchange Project on Experimental Sandboxes
ISGAN, in partnership with the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) and the Swedish Smart Grid Forum is organizing an in-depth knowledge exchange initiative on models for experimental/regulatory sandboxes to enable smart grid deployment.
