How can sector coupling enable flexibility provision? – Technical and market integration challenges, MAGNITUDE Public Workshop, 10th October 2019, Brussels Belgium

Posted by on Jul 29, 2019 in News

The MAGNITUDE H2020 European project (https://www.magnitude-project.eu/) aims to develop business and market mechanisms as well as supporting coordination tools, to provide flexibility to the European electricity system by enhancing the synergies between electricity, gas and heating/cooling systems. The goal is the provision of services by multi-energy systems to support the cost-effective integration of renewable energy sources and enhance the security of supply. The project results are validated on 7 real-life case studies of multi-energy systems in Austria, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.

This public workshop organized by the MAGNITUDE consortium will be dedicated to the presentation of the project results, the latest development of the MAGNITUDE tools, the project real-life case studies and the exchange of experiences and ideas with other professionals from the energy and economy fields. The day is planned with a series of sessions and the participants will have the opportunities to join interactive discussions, enjoy the working lunch, watch MAGNITUDE demonstrations and posters.

Venue: University Foundation – Fondation Universitaire, Egmontstraat 11 rue d’Egmont – 1000 Brussels

Registration is Free and until October 3rd. 

Agenda for the event:

10h – Welcome coffee

10H30 – 11h00 Introduction of the topic and presentation of the MAGNITUDE project – Régine Belhomme, EDF

 The challenge of flexibility provision in the electricity system.

11h00 – 12h00 Session 1 – New technical challenges for Multi-Energy Systems – Chair: Nicole Pini, EIFER

This session will tackle the role that sector coupling and storage technologies have in providing flexibility.

  • Shaping the future multi-energy systems: lessons learnt from the project case studies (20 min, Nicole Pini, EIFER)
  • Heating and cooling perspective in energy integration (20 min, Alessandro Provaggi, DHC+)
  • Discussion (20 min)

12h00 – 13h00  – Poster session  and demonstrations – Chair: Angelina Syrri, DTU

Learn more about MAGNITUDE results and the tools under development, through presentations of posters and live demonstrations.

 13h00 – 14h00 – Lunch 

14h00 – 15h15 Session 2 – Aggregation and market integration of multi-energy systems– Chair: Kris Kessels, VITO

This session will first look into flexibility provision of multi-energy systems (MES) to the electricity system within the H2020 European projects MAGNITUDE and FHP, specifically focusing on the approach towards aggregation.

15h15 – 15h45 Coffee break

15h45 – 16h45 – Session 3 – Modelling and Simulation of Multi-Energy System for flexibility quantification – Chair: Edoardo Corsetti, RSEMeysam Qadrdan, Cardiff University

In this session we will discuss why MES are relevant for flexibility service provision and how to set (optimal) strategies for market service participation.

16h45-17h00 – Conclusion and next steps – Régine Belhomme, EDF

Wrap-up of the day. Upcoming results and next steps in MAGNITUDE.
