JP ESI 2nd "Research meets Policy" Conference

About this event

The rapid changes in energy technology, markets and policy pose large challenges for industry and governments. Many uncertainties affect the increasingly integrated energy system. The knowledge institutions that constitute the EERA Joint Program on Energy Systems Integration aim to support decision makers in industry and government.

While the energy transition continues to pick up speed in some areas, other parts are being delayed. At this second ‘Research Meets Policy Conference’, the morning is dedicated to the fast development of wind energy in the North Sea. How should investment security and market efficiency be balanced? How can this vast amount of energy be integrated in the onshore grids? In the afternoon, the speakers will delve into the complex interplay between technological advancements and societal implications within the energy transition. The goal of the session is to examine and find solutions to the 'Justice paradoxes' that arise when efforts to speed up the energy transition conflict with the rights and preferences of citizens.

The conference program is designed to facilitate dialogue between policy makers, administrators and analysts supporting policy making, energy network operators, market parties and researchers. Please join us in the debate and register here!
