“Challenges and Opportunities with Renewable Energy Penetration”

Speaker: Dr. J. Yan
Royal Institute of Technology & Mälardalen University, Sweden
Editor-in-Chief of Applied Energy

Abstract: Energy systems have been in transition, extending their
boundaries beyond the energy systems themselves. One of challenging issues is the intermittent power generation and
mismatching of energy supply and demand over a time scale when high renewable energy penetration takes place. This calls for interdisciplinary and synthetic approach from not only the
systematic overview, but also detailed components of clean energy systems. It needs to integrate the end-users load control with different energy saving approaches. It is location specific and highly tailored to serve its customers’ needs. Changing from resource conversion into the smart integration also needs integration of energy with digitalization. Renewables, distributed generation, and smart grids demand new capabilities and are triggering new business opportunities, which is further stimulating the future development of the energy systems.
