On behalf of the CEM11 pre-event organizers (ISGAN and PSF), we invite you to the ISGAN-PSF joint workshop “A holistic approach to low emission energy systems through the sector integration” on Wednesday 16 September, 14:30 – 16:00 CET (15:30 -17:00 Riyadh).

Clean Energy Ministerial 11 (CEM11) hosted this year by Saudi Arabia, will be entirely virtual and open to all via live webcast.

This workshop will bring together ongoing and upcoming CEM work from various perspectives, looking at power system integration enabled by digitalization and new technologies for power system flexibility – such as electric mobility and distributed storage. The focus of the discussion will be on key policy support, including market design, multi-stakeholder coordination, cross-sectoral approaches. From CEM, this includes the Power System Flexibility Campaign, the International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) and the work of the Horizontal Accelerator for EV Integration. Also, during the event, the winning projects of the Sixth ISGAN Award of Excellence will be announced. (Please find more details in the attached PDF file.)

Webinar: Smart4RES – Data science for renewable energy prediction

The prediction of Renewable Energy Source (RES) production is a worldwide challenge for Smart Grids. In this webinar, you will learn next-generation solutions proposed by the European Project Smart4RES: • Future power system applications based on RES forecasting, • Innovative weather and RES forecasting products to increase performance by 10-20%.

5 jun 2020 @ 14:00 CEST

Duration: 1 hour

The targeted audience of the webinar is:

  • decision-makers from the energy sector and and the power system industry (operators of power systems, energy producers, market regulators, energy traders, etc.)
  • senior engineers with experience in renewable energy or statistics / data science.

Key messages of webinar:

  • Collaborative forecasts enable the distributed optimization of energy transactions by multiple actors of power systems, yielding value through data markets while preserving data privacy.
  • High-resolution forecasts give tailored information on the uncertainty of RES production sites, thanks to advanced weather predictions and cutting-edge data science.
  • Artificial Intelligence teams up with human expertise to exploit the big data available on RES production and power systems to optimize decision-making for market applications and grid management.
  • Synergies between RES and storage systems are optimized and validated in practice on various contexts, from a large RES power plant to an entire isolated power system.

Webinar: New business models for distribution grid stakeholders under high penetration of DER

In a context with high penetration of distributed energy resources, the smartening and digitalization of distribution grids enable unlocking the potential of distributed flexibilities. However, new business models are necessary to make this a reality. This webinar will explore some of these new business models, with a focus on four main agents, namely DSOs, aggregators, end-users, and data service providers. The challenges and opportunities for these stakeholders are discussed, with an emphasis on perspective of the DSO as neutral market facilitator and distribution system optimizer. The work presented in this webinar is part of the European H2020 project Integrid (https://integrid-h2020.eu/).

May 19, 2020 02:00 PM in Brussels

Duration: 1h

The webinar mainly targets DSOs, and potential flexibility providers (VPPs, aggregators, flexible consumers), but it is also relevant to all other stakeholders with an interest in the topics of smart distribution grids, local flexibility services and aggregation. These includes, but is not limited to: regulators, academics and researchers on these topics, retailers, or software and data service providers.

Key messages:
• New business models and solutions are necessary to unlock the full potential of distributed flexibilities and metering data.
• These business models open both new challenges and opportunities for several stakeholders such as DSOs, end-users, aggregators or data service providers.
• The DSO in particular will have a central role as market facilititator and system optimizer.

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.

Apr 23, 2020 02:00 PM in Brussels

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.
