ERIGrid Consultation with Energy Professionals and Manufacturers at European Utility Week in Amsterdam (NL) on 5 October, 2017
On 5 October at 13:00 CET ERIGrid will hold an open consultation at the European Utility Week 2017. This interactive discussion and presentation of the ERIGrid project aims to obtain feedback from representatives of utilities, standardisation organisations, industry/manufacturers, and anyone interested in smart grid testing methodologies.
The event will specifically look into these topics:
- Introduction on the ERIGrid project
- Holistic system integration and validation procedure developed in ERIGrid
- Project results on development and enhancement of simulation tools and methodologies
- Free of charge access to the ERIGrid research infrastructures/laboratories and the targeted research topics

The International Electrical Equipment Conference is jointly organised by Tecnalia and Orkestra and will take place in Bilbao (ES) on 18-19 October, 2017. This year’s focus will be on Smart Grids, Digitisation and Energy Storage.
As digitisation, storage, new equipment and process technologies will bring major changes to power grids and consumer installations, the current power system will evolve towards new energy systems. Power grids and the distribution network form the central element of the energy system and are one of the main challenges for developing a smarter network model. It is therefore essential to analyse the business opportunities and perspectives for the electrical capital goods industry in this area.
Therefore, the agenda will include discussions on technological aspects alongside associated economic, regulatory and business-model issues.

The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) will organise four Regional Workshops covering the whole European Union, starting in Autumn 2017.
The 2-day workshops aim to present and monitor the implementation of RD&I activities addressing energy system integration issues at national and regional levels in Europe as well as stimulate exchanges between stakeholders, Member States and associated countries, to foster the efficient implementation of RD&I projects all over Europe.
The dates and locations are:
- South-Eastern European Region: 23-24 November, Cyprus
- Northern European Region: 7-8 December, Latvia
Registrations for the Workshops in the Central and Western European Region are now open!
Registration and agendas for the South-Eastern and Northern European Region will be available soon.
Within the IDE4L project, PowerLabDK PowerLabDK of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) tested and co-developed an automation framework for both automation techniques and other new integration techniques that significantly improves the hosting capacity of the network. By automating the integration of renewable generation and energy efficiency appliances into distribution network management, the cost-efficiency of distribution networks will improve accordingly – thus ensuring more flow at lower cost, which makes an ideal grid for all.

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have set a record efficiency for a dual-junction solar cell. The efficiency was certified at 32.6%, surpassing the previous mark by a full percentage.
Higher cell and module efficiencies translate directly into an increase in energy production while reducing the land capital expenditure and installation cost of a system, thus reducing the cost of solar energy.
The results of this work will be presented later this month at the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference in Washington, DC.
