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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
