System integration: the next frontier for wind energy?

High-level & plenaries

When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 9:00 - 10:00
Where: Auditorium 1

Session description

The latest projections from the European Commission, the IEA and many others foresee wind power becoming the leading form of power generation in Europe by 2030. Integrating higher shares of renewables has far-reaching implications for the energy system. Accordingly, the discussion will focus on what should be done today to ensure we stay on course with the ambitious decarbonisation objectives for 2050 agreed upon by the EU and its Member States.
