The subject of his speech...

The Role of Electricity Storage in Modern Electricity Networks

The ever-increasing penetration of distributed production units into existing electricity distribution networks has created a number of technical problems in the operation of these networks. In solving these technical issues, the use of energy storage means is expected to play an important role. The aim of the speech is to present the possibilities offered by the storage of electricity in modern power systems and to present scenarios and results from real pilot installations in Northern Greece.
