European Smart Grids Forum
Start Date:29 Nov 11
Europe is now overwhelmingly agreed on the benefits of smart grids but it remains to be decided how regulation and financing structures will have to adapt to support change. The European Smart Grids Forum will bring together experts to share their experiences from tests and trials to help further understanding about what works and what does not in smart grid development.
Key issues include:
• How will smart grids support the move to a low carbon future?
• What are the costs of smart grid development and how will the funding be found?
• From rewarding efficiency to incentivising innovation: how should regulation adapt?
• how can we effectively scale up smart grids tests and trials?
• 2010’s – the decade of the electric car? Are the local networks ready?
• From passive to active: how will the role of the network operator change?
• António Aires Messias, Executive Board Member - InovGrid, EDP Group
• Jim Sutherland, Network Development Director, Scottish Power
• Dr Karl Derler, Managing Director, Linz Strom Netz
• Dr. Cristiano Marantes, Low Carbon Networks Development Manager, UK Power Networks
• Dr. Rémy Kolessar, Director, Department for Technical Analysis, Energy Markets Inspectorate
• Johan Söderbom, Group R&D Programme Manager, Vattenfall
