CROSSBOW participates in IRED 2018

04 Oct

On 17th October CROSSBOW will be presented by ETRA –leader of the consortium– at the 8th International Conference on the Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources – IRED 2018. Participants could learn how this Horizon 2020 project is fostering cross-border management of variable renewable energies and storage units, while enabling a higher penetration of clean energies whilst reducing network operational costs and improving economic benefits of clean energies and storage units.

CROSSBOW technologies and solutions will be packed within 9 different products, the impact of which will be demonstrated by 8 TSOs through 9 Level Use Case (HLU) or scenarios applied in large scale demonstrators in South Eastern Europe. The different solutions will be integrated, deployed and demonstrated under real life conditions, evaluating its impact under different configurations and operating conditions for a period of 18 months.

IRED 2018, which takes place 17-18 October in Vienna, is a global conference gathering experts from industry, government and academia to share information on state-of-the-art technologies, research and know-how and engage in lively discussions related to the integration of renewable and distributed energy resources into the power systems. The conference will focus on the technical, market, and regulatory issues that challenge the integration of these resources into the grid.

The goals of this conference are to:

  • Share status and latest results of research projects
  • Better understand and communicate the visions from various stakeholders and players
  • Learn from individual national programs and policies
  • Discuss main issues and barriers and identify other needed research and potential solutions
  • Stimulate international, national, and regional project and program coordination

The conference will include several opportunities for in depth discussion within pre-conference sessions, post-conference breakouts, a poster session, and evening events.
