Transforming the Power System – Challenges and Solutions

26.10.2012
The Fifth International Conference on Grid Integration for Renewable Energies will take place from 4 to 6 December 2012 in Berlin.
International experts from 17 countries will be discussing the change in Germany’s energy policy and the transformation of the grid. In addition, they will be comparing it with scenarios in other countries. The patron of the Fifth International Integration Conference is the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservancy and Nuclear Safety.

In addition to covering the basic political conditions, the conference will focus on the technological challenges of grid integration. In further plenary sessions, international experts will be presenting pilot projects of intelligent power grids (so called Smart Grids) in model regions, future scenarios in which renewable energies takes up to 80 per cent of energy provision as well as new standards and testing methods.

All Participants at One Table

“The German goals for climate change can only be attained when the energy supply itself is transformed”, says the conference chair Philipp Strauß from the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy Systems Technology in Kassel. “With this, the Fifth Integration Conference, we are thinking outside the box and have brought all the participants from the energy sector to the table for the first time.”

Among the contributors count, in addition to energy providers, politicians and plant operators, representatives from energy agencies, the European Commission as well as research and testing institutes from Europe, Asia, Australia and America. With panel discussions, short presentations, workshops and accompanying exhibitions, the organiser has created additional platforms for participants to exchange experience across international borders.

Decision Makers of the International Energy Sector

The International Conference on the Integration of Renewable Energy Sources and Distributed Energy Resources is directed toward decision makers from the energy sector. Since its inception in Brussels in 2004, it has taken place every two years in a different country. The patron of the Fifth International Integration Conference is the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservancy and Nuclear Safety. Further information, registration forms and the detailed programme are available in the Internet at www.conference-on-integration-2012.com.

Press conference

For press representatives a press conference will take place on 4 December, 13 – 14 with international energy experts of the integration conference at the conference venue, the Maritim proArte Hotel in Berlin.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
