Webinar. Assessment of smart grid initiatives: the ISGAN smartgrideval toolkit

Smart grid initiatives have grown the complexity of planning activities, the related wide-range impacts require broad approaches for being properly accounted. The webinar analyses current practices and use cases of the assessment approaches. The advantages of combining Cost-Benefit and Multi-Criteria analyses are presented. A tutorial on the smartgrideval software developed as a part of ISGAN activities is provided.

Duration: 1h

Smart grid initiatives generate wide range impacts which are not captured by the traditional monetary analysis.

Broader and more general assessment tools are required for estimating the actual smart grid potential.

The use of an approach which combines the Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) for the monetary impacts and the Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) for non-monetary impacts is promising to increase the accuracy of the assessment of smart grid initiatives.

As a part of ISGAN activities, the smartgrideval software is proposed a as decision support tool in the context of smart grid assessment.

India Smart Utility Week (ISUW 2020)

International Conference and Exhibition on Smart Grids and Smart Cities

India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) has been organising its flagship annual event, India Smart Grid Week (ISGW) since 2015 and it is considered as one of the top five international events on Smart Grids and Smart Cities. With launching of 100 smart city projects by the Government of India, water and city gas distribution utilities will also need to equip themselves with latest technologies for improved operational efficiency and successful integration into the smart city systems. However, lack of effective policy and regulations both at the central and state level along with inadequate safety guidelines, standards, business models act as barriers for its growth. In order to address all the challenges and to discuss future technologies and opportunities, we have transformed the India Smart Grid Week (ISGW) to India Smart Utility Week (ISUW) in 2019. From the overwhelming feedbacks we received, ISUW 2019 was an astounding success, attended by over 1800 + delegates and 288 speakers from 41 countries.

ISUW 2020 will be organised as an International Conference and Exhibition on Smart Energy and smart mobility for Smarter Cities. ISUW 2020 will bring together India’s leading Electricity, Gas and Water Utilities, Policy Makers, Regulators, Investors and world’s top-notch Smart Energy Experts and Researchers to discuss trends, share best practices and showcase next generation technologies and products in smart energy and smart cities domains. ISUW 2020 will include plenaries, keynotes, interactive workshops, high level roundtables and technical sessions on variety of topics.

 

ISGW 2019 Post Event Report can be viewed at link: http://indiasmartgrid.org/reports/…

 

ISUW 2020 is planned from 03 – 07 March 2020 in New Delhi – see also: http://www.isuw.in/

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.

27 Feb 2020 @ 14:00 CET

Duration: 1h

In this webinar it will discuss the need to model coupled energy systems in a single framework and we will introduce encoord’s Scenario Analysis Interface for Energy Systems (SAInt), a software application to model, plan, and operate coupled energy networks.
