The electricity market is changing, opening opportunities for more flexibility in generation, storage and consumption. The integration of a large amount of new renewable energy sources poses great challenges for the European electricity grids & markets. Network reinforcement, market harmonisation and integration are solutions and challenges for the various players in the electricity industry. New technologies such as Power to X, Batteries, Demand Side Response DSR, Water Electrolysers, Fuel Cells and others compete or complement each other in terms of technical capabilities and economic performance. The integration of such new technologies and methods, to provide grid services and optimise the use of existing infrastructure, is changing the face of the electricity industry in the long term.
The 4th GSM-Symposium aims to outline recent developments in the European grid service markets, to highlight advancements and challenges in international cooperation and to reflect the technological progress. In addition, it reports on experiences and success stories, which support a rating of the performance, and future potential of new sustainable technologies.
The 4th GSM-Symposium addresses grid and technology experts, scouts and managers from the electricity industry, administration bodies and researchers interested in the commercial aspects of grid services and new technologies. Experts present their contributions to technological advances and propulsive business solutions. The international audience will exchange on market logic, regulations and harmonization activities, future trends, operations, technology capabilities, and long term business plans and other business related aspects of European grid service markets.
