    InnoGrid2020+

    Brussels, Belgium

    InnoGrid2020+ is the not-to-be-missed EU event on innovation in electricity networks. It is co-organised by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and the European Distribution System Operators for Smart Grids (EDSO).

    The 5th edition of InnoGrid2020+ is scheduled to take place over 22 March (afternoon) and 23 March (full day) at the Center for Fine Arts in Brussels.

    This year's conference will focus on "Digital Energy". It will address the innovation paradigm behind the distribution and transmission interface and will also take stock of on-going R&D projects. Finally, it will address the question of how regulation could facilitate innovation in the new power system. Beyond engaging presentations, panel sessions and debates, InnoGrid2020+ will run a poster and exhibition session, enabling participants to interact and share knowledge and best practices.

    European Utility Week

    Fira Barcelona Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain.

    As the premier business, innovation and information platform connecting the smart utility community, the European Utility Week (EUW) focuses on regional and global developments in Grid Optimisation, Renewables, Energy Storage, Smart Metering, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Energy Services & Efficiency, Intelligent Buildings, Data Management, Analytics and IoT, Cyber Security, Smart Gas and Smart Water.

    The event serves as an annual meeting point for the community and will be attended by 12,000 international visitors, 450 speakers and 600 exhibitors.
    Innovation underlines every element of the show with a special focus on connecting people from all levels of the utility value chain from technology giants to start-ups and from senior-level experts to young talent.

    Unique to European Utility Week is the Hub Session programme taking place on the exhibition floor where visitors can attend presentations, panels and discussions for free.

    EDSO for Smart Grids (EDSO), the European sector association representing electricity distribution system operators (DSOs) has partnered with European Utility Week, the premier business, innovation and information platform for the smart utility community.

    EDSO will be involved in coordinating a Hub Session as part of the Intelligent Grid programme highlighting innovative projects. In this Hub Session, the twin projects DREAM, evolvDSO, IDE4L and INCREASE co-funded by the European Commission’s FP7 programme will present their vision on how to reduce the innovation gap for active network management.

    The session is titled “Innovation in Grids: Active Network Management, from Concept to Reality”, will be held on Tuesday, November 17th, and will be presented by Roberto Zangrandi, Special Advisor, EDSO for Smart Grids.

    DREAM project views will be presented by Raphael Caire, Project Coordinator of DREAM, Associate Professor at the Grenoble Institute of Technology.

    Themes that will be addressed by Professor Caire are:

    • The Advanced Heterarchical Management Approach
    • Lessons learned from the tests/demonstrations
    • Roadmap and solutions

    DREAM Project Closing Event

    Strasbourg (France)

    The scope of this public event is to present the innovative Dream concept and results for the smart management of the electricity grid, as already demonstrated in real operational environments in France, Italy, Greece and The Netherland.

    The event will include a visionary session and interactive panel sessions, as well as an extensive exhibition of Dream technology.

     The dream project and its outcomes

    In the DREAM project, started in September 2013, 12 academic and industrial European partners, supported by the European Commission, develop electricity‐grid management tools for a better integration of Renewable Energy Generation Sources.

    Main Outcomes address:

    • Exploiting distributed intelligent devices, smart and self‐organizational solutions with market driven prosumers involvement to draw the future distribution grid architectures.
    • Allowing for larger amounts of distributed generation from renewable energy sources by leveraging new coordinated response methods, decreasing costs without compromising network reliability and quality of service.
    •  Validating the concept on different grid types and propose evolution for wider contribution by energy distribution players and final users to more efficient management of demand/response, congestion and contingency conditions.
