INTERPLAN will be holding a technical workshop  “Innovative Network Operation Planning Tool for the TSO and DSO” on 10 September 2019 in Porto, Portugal as a parallel session in SEST2019 (International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and Technologies).

To deal with the rising challenges in operating the European power networks as a result of the increasing share of renewable energy resource, as well as penetration of emerging technologies such as storage and demand response, the H2020 project INTERPLAN is developing a tool to support TSOs and DSOs in the operation planning of the pan-European network.

In order to realise this, the future EU grid scenarios, the potential barriers in integrating these emerging technologies, new methodologies for planning the operation of such complex networks, as well as requirements and show cases for validating and proving the applicability of the tool are being developed.

Join the upcoming free access technical workshop “Innovative Network Operation Planning Tool for the TSO and DSO” to learn about INTERPLAN project’s latest achievements on the mentioned aspects and exchange opinions with the consortium. 

INTERPLAN partners are especially looking forward to the feedback from the audience on the project developments. All suggestions and criticism are given thorough consideration by the consortium. This approach ensures that INTERPLAN will reach its goal of optimising network operation planning.
