Renewable Distributed Generation Forum13-15 April 2016
The Renewable Distributed Generation Forum, April 13-15, 2016 in Lausanne, Switzerland, will bring together top experts from around the world to examine the very latest technology advances, case studies, and business models for increasing the penetration of renewable energy while optimizing the benefits for stakeholders across the energy ecosystem. The emphasis is on real-world deployments, key lessons learned to date, and success strategies moving forward.
The Forum is organized by the Smart Grid Observer and Le clanché,the Swiss battery specialist and developer of industrial scale lithium-ionstorage solutions. École Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where the Forum will be conducted, is providing participants with a special opportunity to visit the institution’s latest utility-scale microgrid project, commissioned in 2015.
Topics to be addressed during the event include:
- Leveraging grid-scale and distributed energy storage
- Market trends, growth projections, and change drivers
- Grid-connected and off-grid microgrid systems
- Managing the impact of renewables on transmission and distribution system
- Interfaces and integration into existing systems
- Power control strategies and monitoring
- Next-gen smart grid technologies and network architectures
- Advanced technologies for enabling greater PV and wind integration
- New-generation distributed energy resources inverters
- And much more
The Forum will also feature an on-site tour of EPFL's Smart Grid Project, which showcases the institution's vision for living on 100% renewable energy. Showcased in the project is a microgrid with2MW solar PV integration that utilizes advanced monitoring infrastructure, grid operational control, utility-scale energy storage from Le clanché, intelligent building technology, and cutting edge cybersecurity applications.
