IEEE EPPI Working Group on Energy: Challenges for Energy Policy in Europe: a technologists’ approach

Thursday 28 September 2017, Aula Magna, 11:20-13:00

Organizer:

Jef Beerten, KU Leuven & EnergyVille, Belgium, IEEE EPPI WG Energy chair (Curriculum Vitae)

Contributions:

  • Jef Beerten (KU Leuven & EnergyVille, Belgium)
  • Julian Barquin (Endesa, Spain)
  • Brian Kirby (Kirby Automation, UK)
  • Michal Wierzbowski (Lodz University of Technology, Poland)
  • Matthias Berger (IIASA, Singapore ETH Centre, Luxemburg/Switzerland)
  • Ana Cigarán Romero (50 Hertz, Germany)

Key questions addressed:

  • Will we still need a power grid? What could this grid look like technology-wise, how do we redefine its role and who will still pay for it?
  • Will we still need  power engineers? How do we integrate the move towards multi-energy systems and data and ICT in the curriculum and is the technical community ready for this challenge?
  • How to ensure the synergies? How do we facilitate the interactions between different forms of energy and what will be the influence of the electrification of our energy system?
  • How to plan for the future? What future do we plan for and how do we account for varying challenges across different regions? How can we integrate energy system planning with our technical know-how?
