Energy Systems for the Norwegian Grid - a workshop at ITS
The workshop is foreseen to serve as a forum of discussion between interested members of academia and other research institutions and Norwegian industries
Energy systems have become a global priority as intermittent renewable energy sources are increasingly integrated into the electrical grid. For instance, smart grids require a cooperative connection among different power generators, storage solutions and components: photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, fuel cells, batteries, etc.
Among the topics of discussion:
· Development of prediction algorithms applied for the short-term and next-day wind/solar power prediction
· Investigation of the effect of co-locating renewable energy sources close to data centres and clouds, in order to schedule on demand the data centre loads
· Formulation of an optimal energy management through the integration of energy storage systems into smart grids
· Research and development of large-scale energy storage systems
The workshop is intended to stimulate ideas for future collaborations toward relevant national and international calls.
