Why You Should Attend

9th Edition European Electricity Ancillary and Balancing Forum

This 9th edition marcus evans conference will explore the regulatory developments in the face of the impending balancing guidelines on the horizon and will cover the best strategies to utilise demand response and demand side flexibility. It will also strive to analyse the commercial practicalities of Grid-level storage and how these can be integrated into the balancing markets and RES. Finally, we provide practical solutions to optimising strategies for improved ancillary services and provide insight into integrating RES into balancing and internal markets.

In 2017 firms are expecting the finalisation of the balancing guidelines that will set the agenda for the next 10 years of work in this field. At the same time electricity operators have to streamline their variability management strategies in order to cope with increasing amount of renewable generation, which has different characteristics to traditional power, due to its variability.
