REserviceS – Wind and solar PV can replace conventional technology in providing grid support

This event will launch REserviceS’ ‘Technical and economic recommendations for the design of a European market for grid support services, as well as for future network codes within the Third Liberalisation Package’

The event will offer lively debates in panels tackling the recommendations from both a technical and a market perspective, and will finish with a networking cocktail. Join us in finding out what variable renewables can do for the grid and how we can make it happen. The agenda is shown below.

Registrations for this event are closed. The publication and recommendations will be made public on the REserviceS website on 30 September. Should you wish to receive the workshop outcome, please send an email to [email protected]

The REserviceS Final Event will be preceded by the PV GRID Final European Event organised on 29 September in the same venue. PV GRID is a European project coordinated by EPIA analysing the legal, administrative and regulatory barriers that are delaying or complicating the large scale integration of photovoltaic (PV) systems on electricity distribution infrastructures across Europe.
