Electricity security in support of mitigation and adaptation efforts

Event — Madrid, Spain

The electricity sector has played a major role in climate change mitigation efforts, expanding dramatically variable renewable energy (VRE) in recent years. However, higher reliance on VRE requires new approaches in system operations and long-term planning to ensure long-term reliability of power systems at all time frames. In addition, the increasing climate impacts which affect all stages of the energy value chains, underline the importance of adaptation efforts in the sector. The event will discuss the increasing challenges and vulnerabilities of power systems and introduce effective policy measures and engineering strategies to support climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, enhancing electricity security.
