IElectrix was present at the virtual event InnoGrid2020+

Digital event

This year, due to the Covid-19 emergency crisis, physical conferences had to be turned into virtual events. In June IElectrix participated in the 2020 edition of InnoGrid, which gathered a total audience of 400 participants.

IElectrix took part in the 2020 edition of InnoGrid on Thursday, 18 June 2020. InnoGrid is the annual event on European innovation in electricity networks co-organized by ENTSO-E and E.DSO. This year’s webinar highlighted the fact that System Operators are even more committed and determined to continue working to support the energy transition, especially during this pandemic.

During this event, the project teamed up with three other Horizon2020 projects for a joint session on “Grids for Renewables” to discuss how DSOs and Smart Grids can help enabling the integration of renewables.

Pierre-Jacques Le Quellec, as Project Coordinator, presented an overview of the IElectrix project along with the demonstrations in Europe and India. Then IElectrix Technical Director Sven Tischer from E.ON focused on the two HELGA demonstration sites in Hungary. He showed that Smart Grids can help enabling the integration of renewables into the distribution network faster and cheaper through the help of batteries. He also pointed out that DSOs can support the development of energy communities by allowing customers to use locally generated energy.
