Flexibility for a sustainable energy system

Flexibility for a sustainable energy system

IEA EUWP Workshop 20 March 2019 Auditorium GSE - Viale Maresciallo Pilsudski 92 - 00197 Rome – Italy

Flexibility is the new keyword when we speak about a decarbonised energy system.

It represents one of the most important requirements when we want to integrate variable renewables in the electricity networks without jeopardising its stability, and is a key element fostering the interaction among the different energy vectors (i.e electricity, gas, heat, water, etc.). The International Energy Agency (IEA), through its Energy Technology Network, is very active in this framework, leveraging the engagement and competences developed within its Technology Collaboration Programmes (TCPs).

Back to back to one of the IEA coordination meetings (namely that of the End-Use Working Party, in charge of the supervision of 14 TCPs), this workshop will present the state of the art and the progress of technologies and solutions to address and enhance the flexibility in sustainable energy systems, highlighting national initiatives and programmes and the contribution of Italian research and industrial activities within international collaborations.
