We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Transport Research Arena 2016 – a transport research event in Europe, gathering every 2 years the key stakeholders: researchers, experts, operators, industry and policy-makers.
This not-for-profit Conference aims at putting Energy Storage – in all its facets – on the map and at fostering discussion and networking with stakeholders from the entire energy value chain.
Piotr Szymanski, Director of JRC Directorate C, will be opening the 1st day. Stathis Peteves, Unit head of C7 and Andreas Zucker will be speakers on Day 1.
Dominique Ristori, Director General of DG ENER, will be delivering a key note speech on the 2nd day and Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President in charge of the Energy Union, the keynote speech of the 3rd day.
The inauguration of the European Interoperability Centre for Electric Vehicles and Smart Grids will be held in conjunction with the International Symposium "Towards a Transatlantic E-Mobility Market"on 28th – 29th October 2015 in Ispra, Italy.
The two-day Symposium will bring together key stakeholders to discuss aspects related to interoperability - Vehicles and Grids - and concrete actions to pave the way towards an e-mobility market.
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), together with the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO), the European Standards Organisations (ESO) CEN and CENELEC, together with the European Commission's Directorate-General Enterprise and Industry (ENTR) have lauched an initiative, within the context of the European Forum on Science and Industry, to bring the scientific and standardisation communities closer together entitled “Putting Science into Standards.
Future energy systems will be forced to become increasingly flexible in order to cope with the challenges derived from the high penetration of renewable energy sources. Therefore, policy makers need to consider issues such as the effects of intermittent energy sources on the reliability and adequacy of the energy system, the impacts of rules governing the curtailment or storage of energy, or how much backup dispatchable capacity may be required to guarantee that energy demand is safely met.
