Flexible Generation: The Key Factor for Future Sustainable Energy Solutions

To address the technological solutions and possibilities, the energy efficiency group at University of Stavanger has arranged a two day course. The course will be free of charge but advanced resignation is required for all participants.

Integration of large amount of intermittent renewable energy in existing grid results in certain challenges that need to be addressed. Generation flexibility improvement of existing conventional power plants in combination with utilization of various storage technologies is of outmost importance for realization of future low carbon energy systems.

To address the technological solutions and possibilities, the energy efficiency group at university of Stavanger has arranged a two-day course. The course will be given by Mr. Ernst Reichstein who has many years of experience in design and operation of large-scale power plants in Europe.
