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.

Registrations for this event are closed. The publication and recommendations will be made public on the REserviceS website on 30 September.
