Online workshop"Power system resilience: lessons from two recent events”
On 8 January 2021, the synchronous area of Continental Europe was separated into two regions due to outages of several transmission network elements. The automatic response and the coordinated actions taken by the TSOs in Continental Europe ensured that the situation was quickly restored close to normal operation. In February 2021, a series of severe winter storms swept across the United States, causing severe power outages and leaving millions in Texas without power.
Our speakers will explain what happened and discuss what are the lessons to be learnt from these events for strengthening the resilience of power systems.
The webinar is jointly organised by the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) and REKK.
