Abstract of the key note lecturer:
The grids are facing more and more challenges with meeting society expectations for grid capacity and flexibility services. At the same time the network companies are making significant investments in their grids to ensure quality of supply and support growth. Longer lead times for building networks are one reason for the challenge, however there is also a need to deploy a wider set of tools to ensure a reliable and efficient service supply. This presentation looks into the capacity and flexibility challenges for the network company, gives an overview of the possible solutions as well as a deeper look into a few case studies of solutions being implemented at Vattenfall Distribution Sweden.
