Seminar: “Impacts of Distributed Generation and Electric Vehicles on Distribution Network Charges”
Research Assoc. Sinan Kufeoglu, The Energy Policy Research Group, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge
Feb 23, Friday 13:40
The share of distributed energy sources is getting larger every day. Traditional distribution systems are not designed for the bidirectional power flow, which have significant impacts on energy trading and distribution systems charges. This talk will focus on the impacts of increasing distributed generation and electric vehicles on the distribution system charges. The talk will also cover some aspects of new Distribution System Platform concept, which might ignite a radical evolution of the traditional Distribution System Operators.
