Flexible Energy Solutions Seminar

As the world shift to more renewable energy, especially variable ones such as wind and solar, a paradigm shift in the power sector has gradually taken place to meet the transition. In particular is the growing trend of more focus on the so-called “Power System Flexibility” in the academic and industrial sectors in this field.

The flexible energy solutions seminar will focus on this trend and what is happening right now regarding this issue.
