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

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.
