10:00–16:30 IEA Symposium on Demand Flexibility and RES Integration – Thinking the Smart Grid from the Consumer End
IEA DSM Flexibility Symposium (PDF) Logo PDF


(Scroll down to get to the IEA Symposium content)

Demand side flexibility is needed in order to effectively integrate renewables and distributed generation in the future energy system. The enabling of flexibility involves many different aspects – from the technical capabilities of equipment (e.g. heat-pumps, storages, photovoltaic systems), consumer behavior to aggregation for market participation – and will lead to new services for the energy system. These aspects are targeted by various technology collaboration programs of the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Experts from this energy technology initiatives will discuss recent research results, technology options and international activities together with academics, distribution network operators and representatives from industry.

The aim of the RASSA Architektur project is to develop a secure and interoperable reference architecture for the Austrian Smart Grid.

To achieve this, the project will make use of research-driven approaches to architecture specification, cybersecurity risk assessment and security requirements specification. In this workshop, we will present some of the processes, techniques and tools that will be applied.

In addition to their application in the project, these items can be used by forward-thinking smart grid security practitioners.
