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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
