Flexible Power Generation – ETN Webinar Series – 1st episode

Challenges and opportunities for flexible power generation in the future energy scenario“, the first episode of ETN new webinar series on Flexible Power Generation, will take place on 29 September 2020. 

In this first episode the European Commission will reveal the EU strategy on thermal power generation, while representatives of the private sector will present their strategy to meet the 2030 and 2050 climate and energy goals ensuring a security of energy supply.

Speakers:

The EU energy strategy to meet the 2030 and 2050 climate and energy goals

Hans van Steen – Acting Director Renewables, Research and Innovation, Energy Efficiency, European Commission 

The role of flexible power generation in the EU energy scenario

Christer Björkqvist – Managing Director, ETN Global 

The decarbonisation of the power generation: an end-user perspective

Attendance to the webinar is free of charge. The webinar will be organised on Microsoft Teams. Please note that the session will be recorded.

On the Flexible Power Generation webinar series: 

To achieve the EU 2030 and 2050 Climate and Energy goals, a high penetration of renewable energy sources (RES) into the grid is required. In this context, the role of the fossil fuel power plants will have to increasingly shift from providing base-load power to fluctuating back-up power (i.e. ramping up and down) in order to control and stabilise the grid. However, this poses several challenges in the operation due to increased wears and tears of the power plants components, as well as a reduction in efficiency and increase of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per unit of produced electricity.

The objective of this webinar series is to shed the light on the actions taken by the EU and the industry to meet these challenges and pave the way for a carbon-neutral energy system that would ensure at the same time secure and affordable energy supply. The series is organised by ETN Global, with the support of ETIP SNET and in cooperation with five EU Horizon 2020 projects:FLEXnCONFU (grant agreement n. 884157), HYFLEXPOWER (grant agreement n. 884229), PUMP-HEAT (grant agreement n. 764706), sCO2-flex (grant agreement n. 764690), and TURBO-REFLEX (grant agreement n. 764545).
