UBITECH Energy’s Anastasis Tzoumpas, Head of Electrical Power & Energy Systems Unit, participated as speaker at the InnoGrid 2022, organized by the European Distribution System Operators’ Association (E.DSO) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO-E) on Tuesday, 14 June.
InnoGrid has been the annual appointment on European innovation in power networks for a decade now. InnoGrid 2022 “Value of the Grids” looks into power networks being central to the delivery of Europe’s energy & climate goals, integrating more renewables and new technologies. In that context on 14 June, a selection of EU funded projects including FARCROSS that showcases how the project brings value to the grid. The focus throughout InnoGrid 2022 has been on how to accelerate the transition in order to reach the European ambition in the next decades.
UBITECH Energy, as FARCROSS’s technical coordinator, presented how FARCROSS develops grid-enhancing solutions to enhance the security of supply in the SE European region without adding new grids.
The aim of this webinar was to provide insight into the FARCROSS Horizon 2020 EU research project, as well as to the recent developments in EU internal market for electricity regulation. More than 55 people logged in to listen to the talks of Anastasios Tzoumpas, Katerina Drivakou and Thanasis Bachoumis.
On 14th January, currENT hosted the third webinar in its Accelerating the Energy Transition series, building on the first two webinars on ‘Optimised Power Grids for a Clean and Green Future‘, and ‘The Role that Direct Current (DC) Grids Can Play‘
Balint Nemeth, Head of High Voltage Laboratory at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, described the benefits of DLR to increase cross-border capacity, lower energy prices, higher social welfare, and much less redispatching inside the country, using the FARCROSS project as an example.
