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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
