|| Participants from power system operators, transmission and distribution grid operators, solar inverter manufacturers, universities and research institutes, and consulting companies will convene in Dublin for the 9th Solar Integration Workshop.
One special focus of the Solar Integration Workshop will be storage integration. Many renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy produce variable power. Storage systems provide a way to level out the imbalances between supply and demand. Thus, electricity production need not be drastically scaled up and down to meet momentary consumption. Instead, transmission from the combination of generators plus storage facilities is maintained at a more constant level. Storage systems constantly grow in their usability, efficiency and number of use cases. More than enough reason to discuss the development in storage integration in detail and dedicate this year’s special topic to storage.
The program will mainly be based on a Call for Papers. Abstracts are welcome from 11 February until 11 May 2019. For more information see http://solarintegrationworkshop.org/callforpapers/ .
