Invitation to INVADE workshop in Oslo 1. February 2018

The workshop will address business cases and market opportunities related to the use of electric vehicles, batteries and smart charging to empower distributed and central storage in distribution grids.

We cordially invite you to join us for a workshop central to INVADE goals on March 6, 2018 at 9:00 hrs. The event will take place at Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport.

Renewable energies and electric vehicles (EVs) change the way we consume and produce electricity. It also changes the way electricity is managed. Those who manage and distribute electricity must think about their role – to always provide the best possible service for the connected customers. But these things are difficult, and often take a long time.

The goal of the European-funded H2020 project INVADE is to speed up this process, by showing that the technologies and solutions we have today should be connected in new ways to solve the challenges of tomorrow. But this should be done in an economically sustainable way and suited to different users. The increased flexibility that batteries with and without wheels provide promise significant value. We ask in what ways this value should be captured?

INVADE has just moved into its second year and we are trying to reach out to harvest input that can shape the pilots and research activities we are currently conducting. How can different players in the electricity domain best capitalize on storage and the flexibility it offers? How will storage and flexibility change the future? What economic and market opportunities can be spotted to be consequently addressed and tested by demonstrators and pilots? What are the most likely investment cases? How can the R&D results produced be best exploited for the benefit of business and society?

The event will offer an ample opportunity to influence the outcome of the project and cater for future pick-ups of concepts, software, hardware, new services, analyses and more.

The event is divided into two sections. For the morning section we have invited expert speakers that will address the highlighted topics.  In the afternoon we will invite you to group sessions where there will be ample opportunities to discuss key issues with other experts.
