International Conferences in Dublin Focus on Grid Integration of Renewable Energies

Darmstadt, Germany - System operators have been aware of the growing potential for a wide-scale blackout for years as high volumes of renewable energy can make it more difficult for them to balance the frequency of the grid, which was originally built to accommodate fossil fuel power plants.

Besides frequency aspects, market as well as regulatory issues, sharing international experiences and lessons learned is the way to meet the grid challenges of today and the future. An opportunity to do just that offers the Grid Integration Week from 14 - 18 October 2019 in Dublin, Ireland that features the 3rd E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium and the 9th Solar &18th Wind Integration Workshops.

Local TSO EirGrid gives great insights into their system operation: be it by presenting in the wind keynote session on “What the World has to Learn from the Ireland and Northern Ireland Experience”, a dedicated EirGrid session or the study trips to the EirGrid control room.

With 40+ presentations in 11 E-Mobility sessions, 50+ presentations in 14 solar sessions and 110+ presentations in 26 wind sessions, the spectrum of topics of the Grid Integration Week ranges from charging infrastructure and distribution networks to storage and power system studies to grid forming.
