The costs of renewables are falling rapidly. In many countries their growing contributions have begun to have profound impacts on the wider system. Conventional generators, markets and network and system operators are all affected.
This one-day conference will address the opportunities and challenges of integrating renewables. Leading thinkers from Oxford, the UK and abroad will share their knowledge and discuss measures that will be needed to meet the challenges, including storage, smart grids and demand-side measures, and the re-design of markets that will be needed to deliver an effective solution.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
