Digitalisation - beyond wind
When: Thursday, 4 April 2019, 10:45 - 12:00
Where: Auditorium 1
This session aims to describe and debate the digital aspects beyond wind, focusing in particular on the integration of wind power in the energy markets and power grids, addressing at the same time the energy management between various sources such as wind, solar, EVs, etc. The focus points should be around the digital solutions that would accelerate the decarbonisation of the energy sector (including electrification of various sectors) and those that would enable grid balancing and energy optimization across the energy sector.
- Understand the opportunities and challenges for wind industry to be part of the modern power systems;
- Understand the opportunities and challenges for wind industry to be part of the new energy markets;
- Discuss possible digital solutions that will enable an electricity system fully based on renewable power;
- Understand opportunities and similarities between wind and other sectors such as industry, and transportation.
