Today’s energy system is largely built on parallel, vertical energy value chains (power, gas, heating, and transport), which rigidly link specific energy resources with specific end-use sectors. This model cannot deliver a climate-neutral economy, because it is technically and economically inefficient.
The decarbonised European energy system of the future will be built on energy system integration, defined by the EU as “the coordinated planning and operation of the energy system as a whole, across multiple energy carriers, infrastructures, and consumption sectors.”
In the vision of the EU, existing and emerging technologies, processes and business models, such as ICT, digitalisation, smart grids, smart meters and flexibility markets will work together to create an optimised system which will open up new opportunities for businesses and consumers.
For example, the growth in the number of electric vehicles will increasingly link the power sector with the transport sector, but also with the building sector where most of the charging stations are located. The electrification of transport can only succeed if these various systems are seamlessly integrated with the help of advanced technologies.
This three-day intensive course, led by experienced industry leaders and top academics, offers an exceptional opportunity to participate in this exciting new development at the heart of the energy transition.
You will be brought up to date on the EU Strategy for Energy System Integration, presented in July 2020 by the European Commission, and on all the latest developments by experts who are actively involved in these processes.
You will develop an understanding of how energy systems interact and how to best put your own energy expertise at work within the larger context of the energy transition. The course will cover a variety of topics including regulation, impacts of electromobility, the future of electrical energy systems and the psychology of consumer behaviour.
The main topics and learning objectives of the course are the following:
This course is designed for professionals with a basic understanding of how energy markets work and who have an interest in sustainable development. This includes consultants and professionals in the energy sector and people who deal with energy issues for example in government agencies or local governments.
