En.odmev 020 to Spotlight the New Energy Landscape
Date: February 12th 2020
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.The 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.
