The 8th International Workshop on the Integration of Solar Power into Power Systems will be held in Stockholm/Sweden, from 16 to 17 October 2018 and is an essential part of the Grid Integration Week.
Participants from power system operators, transmission and distribution grid operators, solar inverter manufacturers, universities and research institutes, and consulting companies will convene in Stockholm for the 8th Solar Integration Workshop.
Special Topic STORAGE
One special focus of the Solar Integration Workshop will be storage integration. Many renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy produce variable power. Storage systems provide a way to level out the imbalances between supply and demand. Thus, electricity production need not be drastically scaled up and down to meet momentary consumption. Instead, transmission from the combination of generators plus storage facilities is maintained at a more constant level. Storage systems constantly grow in their usability, efficiency and number of use cases. More than enough reason to discuss the development in storage integration in detail and dedicate this year’s special topic to storage.
