To reach the “20-20-20” climate goals, Europe is increasingly generating renewable energy through technologies such as solar panels and wind turbines. Renewable resources are, however, dependent on weather patterns and therefore generate variable amounts of power over time. In order to provide secure energy systems which delivers energy when we need it, renewables have to be used in conjunction with ‘back up’ power sources, which can ramp up generation quickly to meet peak demands, while managing demand by using smart grids and by hydro-based balancing services. Goal of the ENSEA Networking Event is to introduce the project to an European audience, exchange with other Regions of Knowledge (energy) projects and to connect to other European funds.
