Gert will share a view on the current and upcoming innovative offshore projects in Elia (Belgium) and 50Hertz (Germany) as an example on how the future offshore grid can be built in a modular way.


FLEXCON 2020

On September 23, James Matthys-Donnadieu will provide an introductory keynote speech during the kick-off session of FLEXCON 2020. James will share Elia’s experience to keep the increasing flexibility needs under control and cover them in an efficient way. He will also bring forward Elia’s view on how to operate the future system by taking advantage of new flexibility sources from everywhere in the system, and how consumers (industries, SME’s and individuals) will play a central role for this.

On September 23, Thijs Vral will co-present the outcomes of a Vehicle to Grid (V2G) demonstration project during the eMobility, Smart Charging and V2G session of FLEXCON 2020. The V2G demonstration aimed at pilot testing the possibilities and capabilities of delivering Frequency Containment Reserves (FCR) from parked EVs. This was a collaborative effort betweeen Elia Transmission Belgium, Enervalis, EVConsult and NewMotion, with the backing of funding from the Flemish government.
