8th Grid Integration and Electricity Ancillary Services 2020

1 -2 October 2020, Virtual Conference

In a future decarbonized and digital world, managing the power system becomes increasingly complex. The increase of renewable sources characterized by more decentralized generation and the increasing number of connections makes the system more complex to run. Both transmission and distribution system operators will need more flexibility: transmission system operators to keep the system in balance and distribution system operators to manage congestions and voltage issues in their grids. Flexibility has become more prominent than in the past. 

8th European Grid Integration & Electricity Ancillary Services is an annual event gathering professionals and decision-makers responsible for TSO markets, Market Development, Networks and Balancing, Regulatory Affairs from European TSOs, DSOs, Power Generators and Power Trading companies to brainstorm on grid stability challenges and innovations, flexibility updates, Clean Energy Package implementation and RES integration among other important issues on the agenda today. It creates an interactive platform for industry leaders to exchange their ideas and to network in a business-friendly environment. The market experts will have an opportunity to learn from the strategies in their peer companies & implement gained knowledge in their daily activities.
