About this webinar


Recorded on: Tuesday 2 June 2020

Grid Flexibility: The grid is the dynamic web of electricity production, transmission, storage, and consumption that 85 percent of the world relies on. But as we increase the supply of intermittent renewable energy from multiple new sources and as demands for electricity increase, the grid must become more flexible adaptable cope and avoid blackouts. This webinar explores how emerging and disruptive technologies are already shaping the energy grids we all rely on.

Discussion points included:

  • Updating current infrastructure to cope with increased distributed energy generation and flexible grid technologies
  • Investing in smarter grids: Utilising emerging technologies to manage grids more effectively
  • Smart storage: Creating virtual power plants to manage and mitigate blackouts
  • What is the role of prosumers and how can they be integrated into them into new energy make-up effectively?
