The 5th International Conference on Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources will take place on the 4th – 6th December, 2012 at the Maritim ProArte Hotel in Berlin, Germany. The growing share of renewable and distributed energy resources in power systems requires the development of efficient measures for their integration. Since the first International Conference on Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources that took place in Brussels 2004, grid integration technology has continuously improved. Many technical and non-technical issues have been solved or are now better understood. However, as the scale of deployment increases, new important challenges are emerging.
In the last few years, the topic of new smart grid approaches that support the efficient grid integration of small generators, storage units and controllable loads has gained considerably higher attention. A number of deployment projects including large-scale field demonstrations have been conducted in many countries. This conference will offer the opportunity to learn about these projects and to discuss results with the partners involved.
Like at the previous events, the latest technical, market and policy aspects related to integration of renewable and distributed energy resources and smart grids will be discussed in plenary sessions. It is the intention of the conference to support the interdisciplinary discussion among different stakeholders promote lasting collaboration among key players from all over the world. Conference side events like workshops, and committee meetings on standardization and other related topics that will take place before and after the conference will give attendees the opportunity to further develop and deepen the knowledge in special topics.
The goals of this conference are to:
- Share status and results of research projects
- Better understand and communicate the visions from various stakeholders and players
Learn from national programmes and policies
- Discuss main issues and barriers and identify other needed research and potential solutions
- Stimulate international, national, and regional programme coordination
The weeklong conference will include pre-conference workshops, post-conference breakouts, tours, a poster session, and evening events.
