What will the future of energy look like, on the side of both supply and demand? What will be the role of flexibility in this future: ‘flexibility’ in the energy system as well as ‘flexibility’ in organisations? Taking place on Wednesday, 5 March 2020 at Intercontinental Hotel in Ljubljana, Montel Energetika.NET’s 13th annual strategic energy conference En.odmev 020 will bring together leading local and international energy industry leaders to discuss these and many other issues.

DXL3014The conference will start with a talk with Roman Bernard, NGEN Director and Investor, about the market for ancillary services. In 2019 in Jesenice, Slovenia, NGEN launched a 12.6 MW battery energy storage system, the largest Tesla Powerpack in Europe. Energy storage systems are one of the elements that promise to play a vital role in the future ancillary services market (MORE), as evident from the interest that NGEN solutions are generating among European TSOs. In an interview he gave to Energetika.NET in 2019, Bernard said a 4 MW storage is enough to balance a renewable power generation capacity of some 100 MW. And if the timeframe for imbalance settlement is now 1 hour, NGEN can offer a timeframe of 1 minute.

This morning session will be followed by welcome remarks. The first one to address the audience is the Slovenian Minister of Infrastructure, Alenka Bratušek, who confirmed that the government would adopt the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) by the end of February despite the Prime Minister Marjan Šarec’ resignation. The second speaker is Christian Zinglersen, who took over as the Director of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) in January 2020, succeeding Alberto Pototschnig, the first director of this Ljubljana-based agency, and taking on the numerous challenges and opportunities posed by the implementation of the Clean Energy Package and the ACER Regulation recast (MORE). The final speaker in this session is the CEO of Slovenia’s electricity TSO, Aleksander Mervar, who has recently emphasised that the electric power network as a whole, rather than just the distribution network, was the backbone of the green transition (MORE).

In the introductory lecture, the Director of Slovenia’s Energy Agency, Duška Godina, will speak about flexibility as a foundation for a modern energy system. In 2019, the Energy Agency launched a public consultation on establishing a demand-side flexibility market in Slovenia, which is due to close later this year. At last year’s En.grids 019 conference, the head of the Slovenian energy NRA said: “If we want the transition to truly deliver broad societal benefits, we need to do this in a cost-effective way and necessarily take into account the flexibility potential. This, of course, calls for a change of mindset, especially in network management and planning.” Godina also discussed this subject at length in an interview she gave to Energetika.NET shortly after the conference.

This will be followed by a discussion about the future of energy on the side of demand, with the panellists including Aleš Koželjnik of Petrol; the President of the Management Board of Elektro Ljubljana, Andrej Ribič; the COO of Holding Slovenske elektrarne (HSE), Mirko Marinčič; the Director of Market Development at Europe Energy, Nina Bračko Colja; the Chief Innovation Officer at GEN-I, Dejan Paravan; the Manager of the InnoEnergy hub for Slovenia, Maja Jerala; and the CEO of Elaphe, Gorazd Lampič. Both panels will be chaired by Igor E. Bergant.

The event will close with invited lectures by Philippe Vangeel, the Secretary General of the European Association for Electromobility (AVERE), who will discuss the trends shaping the future of energy, and a representative of Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, who will discuss the trends shaping tomorrow’s economies.
