Symposium “The transition to a flexible electricity market” on 11th of July, Barcelona

EMPOWER H2020 results were explained in the “The transition to a flexible electricity market” Symposium.

There is a need to find answers and propose solutions to the increasing integration of Renewable Energy Sources in the existing electricity transmission network. The subsequent technological (r)evolution is affecting the structure of the electricity markets and also the interactions between TSOs and DSOs. The symposium covered all these issues through the vision of three European projects (SmartNet, EMPOWER and INVADE) , academic experts and professionals from the electricity sector with long expertise in the subject.
