Invited Talk: "Renewable Energy Transition and Living Sustainably"

Activity: Talks and presentationsTalks and presentations in private or public companies


Energy markets are at the heart of one of the biggest societal challenges of our time - creating a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy provision. Renewable Energies are also new guests and participants in such markets. While the transformation of the energy system is rapid in certain regions of the world-such as Europe (through leveraging formation technology, smart technology, policy frameworks and market instruments), the speed of the global energy transition remains highly uncertain and there exist a number of socio-technical challenges yet to be solved. Harvesting renewable energies implies decentralization, where many consumers also become producers, who at times export power to the grid. To accommodate large numbers of renewable resources, energy distribution and transmission networks need to be adapted and expanded to avoid network congestion and failures. Flexibility options and services have to be also enabled not only at the supply side but also through responsive loads and suitable means of energy storage to maximize the security of supply and the quality of service in the most efficient way. Accelerating the renewable energy transition also requires a rethinking of electricity markets in many aspects, a key one being the adaptation of their design and operation to support higher shares of variable renewables as well as distributed power generation. This talk covers the aforementioned promising areas in renewable energy transition and living sustainably and discusses the current and future opportunities and challenges exist in this context.
