Collaboration with: EU-GCC Clean Energy Network
King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center, in conjunction with the EU-GCC Clean Energy Network, is organising a webinar titled “Future roles of system operators in facilitating the energy transition and optimizing renewable energy utilisation,” taking place on Monday, 28 September 2020, starting at 13.30 (Riyadh – GMT+3).
The role of transmission system operators (TSOs) and the different models that are appearing in terms of separating system operations from owners of transmission assets is beginning to become clearer. These changes are also being felt elsewhere in the power supply chain with potentially the same mirror-image changes at the distribution level between distribution system operators (DSOs) and distribution network owners.
This webinar will review the impacts of evolving system operator models and how they support the delivery of emerging technologies such as distributed generation, energy storage and EVs. In addition, the transition from the current model to a more intelligent distribution system will be examined to discuss examples that could be applied in the GCC countries, especially those that employ vertically integrated structures.
