As the share of renewable energy (RE) increases – in part due to the EU’s new accelerated timeline as part of the Renewable Energy Directive, it will need to be incorporated into the greater energy system. Effective grid integration, therefore, is a vital part of the transition to a renewable energy system.
Grid technology should be flexible and stable, in both electricity and heating/cooling grids. Due to rapid innovation of renewable technologies, the grid framework should have a long-term perspective, accounting for future capacities and targets. The regulatory framework and market design should allow for continued RE development and system variability. During this session, we will hear from experts regarding recommendations for effective integration of renewable energy in grids. The following presentations will feature in the workshop:
- “Flexibility at the interface of TSOs, DSOs and markets” – Tara Esterl, Austrian Institute of Technology
- “Increased System Stability through Flexible Biomass CHP Plans with Steam Storage” – Thomas Riedmaier, InES
- “Grid Integration of Hybrid PV and Biogas Systems” – Tobias Baldauf, InES
- “Fraunhofer’s interests in the area of grid-integration (electricity & heating/cooling)” – Anett Hauser, Fraunhofer Group for Energy Technologies and Climate Protection
- “Interconnect project: interoperable solutions connecting smart homes, buildings and grids” – Prof. Dr. Thierry Coosemans, Free University of Brussels
