Flexibility in the electricity distribution system is crucial in the transition to the future intelligent, cost-effective and robust electricity grid. Variable distributed generation (DG), dispatchable loads and energy storage are resources that, if properly addressed, may facilitate the transition. To realise the flexibility potential in grid operation, pervasive monitoring, control and automation is needed. This calls for reliable and secure communication systems.

This year’s conference will present results from the research on flexibility and communication, and provide discussions around these topics.

There will be two main sessions. The first session is “Flexible resources to facilitate the smart grid transition“. The session’s main keynote speaker is Prof. Henrik Madsen, DTU Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science.

The second session is about “Smart grid communication and cyber security” with main keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Ir. Boudewijn R. Haverkort, Dean, Tilburg School of Humanities & Digital Sciences and Chairman Commit2data.

The conference will be followed by an internal day for the CINELDI partners on April 10th
