Flexibility, Energy Storage and Demand Side Response – Online workshopKnowledge sharing between the United Kingdom and Hungary to enhance energy security.
Date: 16 March 2023 9:00 – 13:00
Future energy systems will be greener and cleaner but must remain achievable and reliable. Rapid electrification and the integration of high amounts of variable renewable electricity sources present challenges to grid stability. The workshop will focus on enhancing energy security by getting together Hungarian and UK stakeholders to discuss the achievements in flexibility, energy storage, and demand side response.
During the workshop, selected UK experts will present the UK’s related energy policy, technology, and regulatory innovation. The invited Hungarian speakers will also familiarize the audience with the Hungarian best practices. The collaboration will enable to reduce the dependence on natural gas, and accelerate the decarbonisation actions, and provide valuable market and policy intelligence to inform representatives of both countries about each other’s achievements.
The aim of the online workshop is to discuss the following:
- UK experience related to flexibility, energy storage and demand side response,
- Innovation activities related to the energy storage,
- Sharing experiences with the regulation of energy storage and demand side response.
Opening speech by Mr. Paul Fox, British Ambassador to Hungary.
